Academics and Support

~~  Due to federal, state and University of Pittsburgh restrictions the advising office is closed to in-person traffic.  Advising office staff is available by email and will continue to provide advising services remotely throughout the fall term.  Please email your specific psychology advisor or the general email with questions.  You may also make use of virtual drop-in advising or log into “Navigate Student” to schedule an appointment with your advisor throughout the fall term. ~~

One of the most important aspects of getting a college education is asking questions.  The information on this page provides answers to some of the questions you may have.  Just know that there are always many resources to help answer your questions.  If you don’t find it on the website, stop by the office in Sennott Square or email us.
