Advising Guidelines

To ensure that the advisor and advisee make the best use of the 30 minutes allotted, the Academic Advising Department is requiring that all students come prepared for their appointment by following these simple steps:

Consult your Distribution of Credits (DOC) Sheet. If you do not have one, a copy of your distribution of credits sheet can be obtained by coming to the Advising Center in 110 Millstein Library anytime Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.

Refer to the course schedule and the Pitt-Greensburg Bulletin. Students should select courses for the term and prepare a written list or fill out a registration form to be given to the advisor at the beginning of their appointment.

Check course availability. Computers are available in McKenna Hall and outside the Registrar's Office in Millstein Library. Students can also check course availability by going to the course information section of this web page. Students should check the availability of selected courses prior to their advising appointment. If a course is closed, students should choose an alternate course before the scheduled advising appointment.

BE ON TIME. Advising appointments are limited to 30 minutes, and another student will be scheduled immediately after you. If you are unable to keep your appointment, PLEASE CALL 724-836-9940 to cancel or reschedule.

Remember, you have agreed to be a proactive participant in the advising process, so you should consult your distribution of studies sheet, refer to the schedule of classes and course descriptions, check course availability and be on time for your advising appointment.
