Office of the Provost

The Graduate Studies Office wants to make sure that all international graduate and professional students have responded to a survey from the Office of International Services (OIS) so that the University of Pittsburgh can address your needs.

Here is a message that was recently sent from OIS inviting your participation in the survey:

If you are a continuing student currently living in Pittsburgh, and you need assistance with housing or other financial issues this summer due to unexpected COVID-19 related expenses, you must complete the OIS Qualtrics survey no later than Friday, April 17, 2020 if you have not already done so. Please note that if you are currently on campus and you receive another email from Panther Central, you must ALSO complete whatever documentation they request. 

OIS is working with the Provost Office, Panther Center and other Pitt departments to address student needs, especially for international students, and it is imperative that we have current information and understand the totality of the need. The only way to do that is for you to complete all applicable surveys and applications. I apologize for the redundancy. 

Thank you for your assistance as we all navigate this difficult situation. Good luck to everyone as the semester winds down. I hope you all stay safe and healthy!
