13. Attend Academic Planning Days

At Pitt-Johnstown we have a two-part orientation, held at different times in the summer. We do this so that we can time the information you are receiving to better suit your needs.

 What's Next?


The first part of Orientation is one of our Academic Planning Days. You are assigned to one of these programs based on your intended major. These days are designed to get you familiar with the academic requirements of freshman year.

A big part of the day is the opportunity for you to meet with a representative from your academic division and get your fall semester class schedule. In addition, you and your parents have an opportunity to meet with representatives from campus offices in order to take care of any last minute details. You should plan to attend the date assigned to your particular major (see below) if possible. If your scheduled date is not suitable, you can attend the make-up session held in July.

The dates for the Academic Planning Days (Orientation Part I) are:

  • Monday, June 18 – Education, Engineering, Nursing & Health Science, and Undeclared
  • Thursday, June 21 – Natural Sciences and Undeclared
  • Monday, June 25 – Business & Enterprise, Humanities, Social Sciences, and Undeclared
  • Thursday, June 28 – All Divisions

You will be receiving a full schedule of events for these days as well as registration information later in the spring.
