Student Success Hub

The Student Success Hub exists as a space for student to collaborate with each other and with University resources.

With rooms available to reserve for group work, spaces to study, and on-demand academic resources and coaches, the Student Success Hub serves as a place for every student to feel like they belong and will succeed at Pitt.

Academic Coaching

Student Success Hub staff provides holistic academic coaching for students who are exploring different majors/minors/certificates/distinctions, changing colleges/schools, or might be in need or academic interventions.

Academic Success Academy

This workshop series focuses on topics that will give you a foundation for success. Past workshops have covered technology resources, social psychology insights that help give a competitive edge, and dealing with test anxiety.

CompleteU Re-enrollment Program

The University of Pittsburgh works with partners across the institution to ensure students at every stage have the support they need to finish their Pitt degree—including those who may have to take a break for various reasons. The CompleteU Program identifies previously enrolled students at any Pitt campus to provide academic coaching and resources in discussing the next possible next step. 

First at Pitt

The First at Pitt initiative identifies, supports, and celebrates our current first-generation students, as well as first-generation faculty, staff, and alumni.

Kessler Scholars Program

The Kessler Scholars Program is a national model for driving success outcomes for first-generation college students, providing comprehensive support from the moment students enroll to after graduation. 

Provost Academy

The Provost Academy is a summer bridge program for first-generation and Pell-eligible students designed to set them up for success in the first year. Through academic projects, community field projects, workshops, and social activities, participating students become more familiar with the campus and the city of Pittsburgh, in addition to the academic climate.

Study PALS

The Study PAL program, via a partnership between the Student Success Team and New Student Programs, is an opportunity for students who need additional support in foundation level courses to study alongside a fellow student who excelled in that course or area prior.

TRIO McNair Scholars Program

The Pitt TRIO McNair Scholars Program, a grant funded program from the U.S. Department of Education, provides a rich diversity of structured educational experiences that are designed to motivate, prepare, and support students in their efforts to pursue postbaccalaureate degrees. McNair Scholars are either first-generation students with limited-incomes or are students who are members of a group that is underrepresented in graduate education and have demonstrated strong academic potential.
