It's time for bigger goals.

Each year, more than 250 students make the switch to Duquesne. We make it easy to transfer; students are admitted on a rolling basis, meaning you're welcome to apply for a fall, spring or summer start.

Our Bridges curriculum, inspired by Pittsburgh's 446 iconic spans, is designed as a transfer-friendly, cohesive academic journey that will get you to graduation.

"I transferred from CCAC. Those credits transferred into Duquesne seamlessly – I just had to follow the syllabus!"

Roberto Laporte '22, Information Systems Technology and Supply Chain Management double major
