“I knew for certain that I wanted to do something in a science-related field, but I really had no idea what I actually wanted to do. Theresa made me feel very comfortable and calm while I tried out different areas. She helped me through the process of deciding on my major. She laid out my options. She assured me that I had time to figure it out. She never let me doubt that it would work out.”
—Noah Puleo (biological sciences, chemistry, non-profit management)
Plot Your Path
The Dietrich School emphasizes individualized, one-on-one academic advising. Advisors help you to explore academic and career goals, become familiar with University policies and procedures, and connect you with the many resources and opportunities the University has to offer. We look forward to getting to know you and working with you in your initial years here at Pitt.
The Advisor-Student Partnership
Your advisor is here to help you develop your own personal path to make the most of your college experience. But you also need to be proactive and prepared. Find out what to expect from advising.
The Advising Process
At least once each semester, you’ll meet with your academic advisor to discuss your academic goals and your progress toward them. With your advisor, you will explore your academic aims and career goals, learn about University policies and procedures, and connect with the many resources and opportunities the University has to offer.
Academic Policies and Procedures
Find out how to declare a major (or multiple majors) and a minor, pursue a BPhil, pick up a certificate, or choose a professional program.
Meet the Advisors
You’ll be working with your dedicated advisor one-on-one, but we’d like to introduce you to the whole team.
We get asked some questions more often than others. If you’re curious about advising, we may have the answer ready for you.
