Students may schedule an advising appointment online using Pathways. Currently, advising is happening remotely. Students can provide a phone number to be reached on, or join a Zoom meeting at the scheduled time. For information on how to use Pathways, see this helpful website: https://www.pathways.pitt.edu/faqs/student-user-faqs
Students whose Peoplesoft ID is an even number are assigned to Dr. Andrew Lotz, and students with an odd number are assigned to Dr. Meri Long.
After declaring the PS major, students will receive an invitation to the next scheduled orientation session, which is mandatory for all PS majors (but open to any student who is interested in the major). The orientation is designed to provide general information about the PS major, to introduce students to the departmental advising process, and to answer questions that students frequently have about internships, career possibilities, and postgraduate opportunities.
