Over 7,100 students enjoy small class sizes (18-to-1 student/faculty ratio) and challenging courses with caring faculty in modern classrooms.\r\n\r\nPitt State promises not just a great education, but a great value as well. Our tuition is among the lowest in the region, and we offer a generous program of need-based and merit financial aid, so family income is not an obstacle to a high-quality education. Indeed, four out of five Pitt State students receive some form of financial aid. \r\n\r\nOur students also have abundant opportunities for internships, cooperative education, independent projects, and other kinds of hands-on learning. Pitt State students can study abroad in more than 20 countries on five continents.

Our students are close enough for big city visits, but still enjoy campus and community sponsored activities. The approximately 20,000 citizens of Pittsburg, KS take pride in supporting Pitt State and its mission of encouraging all individuals to achieve their potential.\r\n\r\nAnd lest we forget…there’s the Gorilla. The revered and unique nickname of our sports teams and a beloved mascot (named Gus), he is a fixture at sporting events, an icon on t-shirts and other college gear, and a symbol of the enthusiastic spirit that’s part of the air we breathe here at Pitt State.\r\n
