We invite you to visit this section for timely information, key deadlines, information about services for your student and more.  

Looking for contact information for a department on campus? Then visit Frequently Used Contacts. You'll find the office locations and telephone numbers that families use most often, all conveniently located in one place.

If you're wondering what to do if your child gets sick on campus, who to call for help with computer problems or how to mail your child a package, check our list of Frequently Asked Questions.  

Do you have other questions? If so, Ask Us. Or feel free to contact Cynthia Young directly at the Parent & Family Engagment Office. Simply email or call phone 724-938-4866. We look forward to hearing from you!
