Quantitative Skills Summer Program
Students who do not meet the basic quantitative skills requirements prior to applying for admission may be required to enroll in and successfully complete the Quantitative Skills Summer Program (QSSP) prior to their enrollment at Heinz College. QSSP is available online during the summer prior to enrolling at Heinz College (no tuition is charged). QSSP classes cover applied algebraic/pre-calculus and problem application, graphing, basic statistics and probability, spreadsheets, and statistical software skills.
QSSP is comprised of two classes in which students will earn two distinct grades. In order to successfully complete QSSP and be eligible to enroll in the master’s program at Heinz College to which they are conditionally accepted, students must earn a grade of B or better (80%) in each of the classes.
Please note that when we require QSSP attendance, we are very confident in your potential for success at Heinz College. Admission provisions are made in the interest of ensuring a smooth transition into our graduate programs, with the goal of optimizing your academic success.
