School Policies and Procedures
If you have questions about school policies and/or student services, PIA’s Catalog/Student Handbooks contains a variety of information regarding school schedules, policies, and requirements. Copies of the Catalog/Student Handbooks are available in the Registrar’s office or from your Campus Director.
Closings, Delays, And Alerts
PIA takes pride in its past efforts in providing uninterrupted training. The school will generally have very few closings and delays due to inclement weather or other reasons. To our students, this means on-time graduation and a minimum of inconveniences.
In the event that a closing or delay is necessary, announcements will be made on public television and/or radio, and in the News section of the PIA website.
To receive text alerts regarding delays or cancellations, subscribe to PIA Alerts below:

Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence Reporting
Any individual (student and employee) may make an anonymous report concerning an act of sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking. An individual may report the incident without disclosing their name, identifying the Responding Person, or requesting any action. Depending on the extent of information available, PIA’s ability to respond to an anonymous report may be limited.
All submissions are sent to PIA’s Director of Education/Title IX Coordinator, Jason Mongan, for review.
Please see the 2020 PIA Pittsburgh Annual Security Report for additional information concerning reporting and acts of Sexual Violence and Misconduct.
