Before You Arrive

✔ Activate your computing account at My Pitt if you haven't already done so.

Secure Your Data Community

As the complexity of the technology environment grows and related security threats increase, there is a need for every University unit to use available tools and services to protect University information and resources. While many security controls in place for the University are administered centrally, it requires the support of the Deans, Directors, and Department Chairs throughout the University to ensure that each area is implementing the unit-level security controls.

We are pleased to announce PeopleSoft Mobile, a new service that makes it faster and easier for students, faculty, and advisors to access the most commonly used features of the Student Information System with their smartphone or tablet.

PeopleSoft Mobile delivers a responsive and easy-to-use mobile interface that works seamlessly with the core functionality of the Student Information System. You can use PeopleSoft Mobile to search for courses, add and drop classes, check your class schedule, access your planner, and view your grades right from your smartphone or tablet. Your class schedule displays in a streamlined, easier-to-read design, and you can download it with just a few quick taps. You can also browse the course catalog and search for classes without having to log in to the system.

There are two ways to take advantage of PeopleSoft Mobile:

  1. Log in to My Pitt and click the PeopleSoft Mobile link
  2. Download the Pitt PS Mobile app from the Pitt App Store

While PeopleSoft Mobile provides access to the most frequently used functions of the Student Information System, some features are not yet optimized for mobile devices. You can still access the full version of the Student Information System from your desktop or laptop by clicking the Student Center link at My Pitt (my.pitt.edu).
