To make an appointment with an Academic Coach, you will need to download a mobile app called Navigate Student or search for the "Navigate Student" task from your my.pitt portal to schedule from your computer. Navigate Student is an app that you’ll use for many resources and services at Pitt. It will tip you off to important events coming up, can help you find the right fit major, connect you with support, allow you to make appointments with an advisor, and stay ahead of roadblocks.
This app is available in the App Store or Google Play Store, and you can search for it by typing “Navigate Student”.
Once you download the app, you will be prompted to select your school (type in: University of Pittsburgh)
You will be asked to sign in with your Pitt username and password
You will be asked to authenticate your login using two-factor authentication (more info on this here: https://www.technology.pitt.edu/services/multifactor-authentication-pitt)
You will be prompted to fill out a short survey about your academic experiences and interests.
After you’ve taken these steps, use the app to schedule an appointment with an Academic Coach:
