This event is an opportunity to receive information regarding your schedule of classes for the upcoming semester. Summer Academic Planning Days are a Pitt-Johnstown tradition.  And while we've had to move this year's programs on-line we are just as excited to engage with you and assist you with the transition to university life.

Please select a date that corresponds with your Major/Academic Division and you will receive an agenda/confirmation with additional details on logging on.

The 2020 Virtual Academic Planning Days will introduce you to academic resources but be on the lookout for additional on-line programs from Financial Aid to Student Affairs to IT Services that will help you make the most of your Mountain Cat experience. Please send your questions or concerns to: or call us at 1-855-LIKE-UPJ.
