The Pitt EXCEL Program Summer Engineering Academy is a two-week intensive STEM review session for incoming first year scholars. S.E.A. will begin in August of each year. Participants will take non-credit courses in calculus, chemistry, and physics. In addition, they will attend an evening study session and an Introduction to Pitt seminar.

At the conclusion of the program, scholars who will be living in University housing during the fall term will have the option of remaining on campus in their permanent housing.

There are a limited number of spots available for this program, so please respond as soon as possible. Scholars who are selected to participate will be emailed additional information regarding program participation at the beginning of June and must submit their deposit by the end of June. The remaining balance for program enrollment will be due the last week of July.

We believe that the EXCEL Summer Engineering Academy is an excellent opportunity for incoming first year scholars to prepare for a major in engineering. If you have any questions, please contact the Pitt EXCEL Program office by phone (412-624-1871) or e-mail (
