Once the email arrives, visit My Pitt (, click the New Account Activation link, and complete the steps in the account activation wizard.

What's Included with Your Account

Your account consists of a unique username (for example, jdoe99) and a password. Your username will not change. You should change your password frequently and make sure to select a strong password. Review the Passwords page for details.

Find Your Account Administrator

Faculty and staff who have questions about their account should contact their Responsibility Center Account Administrator. Responsibility Center Account Administrators also have the ability to create specialized accounts for certain purposes.
