A Visiting Student is...

A visiting student is defined as a student currently enrolled at another institution and interested in taking a limited number of credits at Pitt-Johnstown. Visiting students typically fall into two main categories: Students who wish to take Summer courses OR students who, for various reasons, elect to take a single Fall or Spring semester at a different college. If this is the application process you're looking for, scroll down for more information about becoming a Visiting student!


Summer Visiting Student

Attending Pitt-Johnstown's summer session is a great option for students who live in the Johnstown area and want to take a few courses over the summer while at home. As with any Visiting arrangement, a prospective student will want to work very closely with offices both at Pitt-Johnstown and their home college to ensure that the credits they take will transfer back to their home institution and fit into their major plan.

All Summer Term applications for Visiting Students are handled through the Registrar’s Office.  For more information, visit the links here, or call (814) 296-7055.


Fall/Spring Visiting Student


If you are interested in being a Visiting Student at Pitt-Johnstown during the Fall/Spring semesters, contact the Admissions Office for an application and instructions. Visiting Students will also want to work closely with their home school, usually the Academic Dean’s office, to ensure that all courses taken at Pitt-Johnstown will transfer.

A prospective Visiting Student will need to send the following to the Pitt-Johnstown Admissions Office:

·         ONE TERM ONLY Application for Admission

·         Official college transcript from your current institution
