To make an appointment with an Academic Coach, you will need to download a mobile app called Navigate Student. Navigate Student is an app that you’ll use fior 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:
Click on the “Appointments” button on the Explore menu
Click “Schedule an Appointment” bar at the bottom of the My Appointments screen
Choose "Study Lab-Academic Coaching"
Pick the reason for your appointment, either "Academic Coaching" or "Study Skills Inventory"
Choose "Study Lab - G-1 Gardner Steel Conference Center" as your location
You can select the coach you would like to work with though we suggest choosing both to see the greatest availability. Choose an appointment time that fits your schedule.
In the comments field when scheduling an appointment, you can specify exactly what you would like to talk about, if you know. If you are scheduling a Study Skills Inventory Appointment instructions on how to complete the inventory will be emailed to you once you finish scheduling your appointment
