  • The end date for the spring semester will not change. The last day of classes is April 17, and the final exam period ends on April 24.
  • Pitt-Greensburg has canceled all athletic competition for the remainder of the spring semester effective immediately. The suspension applies to all athletic competitions and practices for the health and safety of all student athletes, coaches and staff members.
  • All undergraduate and graduate students will be permitted to convert any of their courses during this spring term from a letter grade basis to a satisfactory (S)/no credit (NC) basis. All courses that are awarded S grades will count toward graduation/degree requirements and satisfy future course prerequisites, while those courses awarded NC grades will not negatively impact a student's GPA. For more information, please read a message from Pitt's Office of the Provost >>
  • Our custodians have transitioned from their typical cleaning assignments to the work of disinfection. We thank them for their critical contributions.
