  2. Username and Password - Computing Services and Systems Development (CSSD) will issue a username and password that will allow you access to on-line self-service areas of the Pitt-Johnstown website and the Pitt-PortalYou must visit to view your assigned self-service sections. 

    • Housing Accommodations.  You may register on-line for on-campus housing.  A $150.00 (US) deposit is required.  The deposit will appear as a credit on your Spring (January) semester invoice.
    • Placement Exams (if appliable).  You may also register on-line for placement exams.  Please note that these exams are offered at various times throughout the year.  If you will not be in the United States during the placement exam dates, special arrangements will be made for you to take them when you arrive. 

    • Dining Services - Although you cannot register on-line for a meal plan, we suggest that you review your meal plan options before coming to campus.  Once you arrive, the staff at the Conference in the Living/Learning Center will assist you with your meal plan purchase.
