Why Pitt State? How about being a springboard to a good career. First and foremost, Pitt State does an exceptional job of preparing students for satisfying careers. Our placement rate for graduates is extremely high, approaching 100 percent in many programs, and their starting salaries trend above national averages. The university also has a strong record of preparing students for success in medical school and other graduate and professional-school programs.\r\n\r\nWith over 100 programs of study, the paths that Pitt State students take to their careers vary widely. At Pittsburg State University, students can choose from over 100 academic programs distributed among the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Education, Technology, and our AACSB accredited College of Business. And if you don’t know what you’d like to major in, our innovative Exploratory Studies Program will introduce you to a range of options and help you find a rewarding course of study. 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. More than 150 student-run clubs and organizations are available for developing leadership skills and to provide group interaction.\r\n\r\nPittsburg State University is located in the southeast corner of Kansas and is within two hours of Tulsa, OK, Kansas City, and Springfield MO. 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
