Summer Academic Planning Days are a Pitt-Johnstown tradition.  While this summer's programs will be virtual, we are just as excited to engage with you and get you ready for a return to the Up-Close & Personal Pitt Johnstown experience for Fall 2021.  During Academic Planning Days you will:

  • Receive your first-semester class schedule

  • Meet your Academic Advisor
  • Learn best practices to make a successful transition to university life
