Anyone 13 or older can take our courses. We recommend students have earned at least a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent.
When deciding which Outlier courses might work best for you, please consider the following:
- Students attempting Outlier courses should be ready for college-level coursework.
- Grades will be documented as part of the permanent academic record with the University of Pittsburgh.
If you do not feel as though you are ready for college-level material, you may elect to audit the course instead of taking it for college credit.
When electing to “audit” a course, a student does not receive a grade nor credits and does not participate in exams. Outlier students who audit courses do so for the purpose of self-enrichment and exploration. Auditing a course will have no bearing on GPA or academic standing.
If you have any questions about the difficulty of the material or would like to audit the course, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org!
