Advising Virtual Office Hours

Students enrolled in Pitt schools other than SCI may use Virtual Office Hours to meet with an SCI Academic Advisor via Zoom, no appointment required. Students may also email quick questions to SCIadvising@pitt.edu. If you have a range of questions to discuss, Office Hours are preferred.

Current SCI students should refer to their assigned advisor's office hours, listed below. Advisor assignments are posted in the Student Center.
