Meal Plan Flex Balances Carry-Over
If you have a balance of meal plan flex dollars on your account, fear not! You DO NOT need to spend them down prior to semester end. These balances DO carry over to the Spring semester!
Reporting positive COVID-19 Results
All reported positive COVID-19 cases are reflected in the Campus Dashboard. Some have suggested we are not receiving all reported cases and thus our actual rates are higher. If you receive a positive COVID-19 test result, please contact Health Services, 412-578-6474, to provide that data and so that we provide guidance to you.
Help Needed? Submit a Care Report
With the beginning of each semester, students occasionally struggle with affordability, academic adjustments, and connecting to the community. If you become concerned about yourself or others, please submit a report and let the Care Team know about any needs, questions or concerns. We are active and will make contact with you, or those you refer, to help. You may also contact the Student Affairs office at 412-578-6293 or email@example.com.
Please enjoy the semester break and travel safely if you are doing so during the holiday season!
