Academic Advising

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the Academic Advising Center has transitioned to a remote work arrangement for most staff. If you need to provide any paperwork/documentation to the Advising Office, we request that you please provide electronic versions/scans to us via email at this time.

Registration for summer and fall is proceeding as scheduled.

  • Starting Monday, March 16th, the Academic Advising Center will conduct advising appointments remotely, rather than in person.  Most appointments will be done via phone, Microsoft Teams, or email. Please watch for specific, additional instructions from your advisor.  Your advisor will be available to talk about classes for next semester, summer classes, strategies for success in a remote learning environment, as well as any concerns. 
  • If you are assigned to a faculty advisor, and have not yet met to select classes, we encourage you to make arrangements with them directly.  You can also schedule classes with one of the professional staff advisors.  To schedule an appointment, please contact the Advising Center during regular business hours, 724-836-9940.
  • If you plan to enroll in a class that requires special permission, please contact the instructor via email to request permission. The instructor will notify the registrar's office that permission has been granted
  • If you plan to take a class through cross-registration at WCCC or Seton Hill University, please work with your advsior to complete the Cross Registration Form. Completed forms must be submitted to the Registrar's office for processing.  Your advsior will help you with this process.  .
