In the summer of 2007, we published our course descriptions site to enable instructors to post custom descriptions for their classes, and to provide students and the public with an easy way to search our class offerings. The University has grown and changed in many ways since this site was first released, as have the capabilities of PeopleSoft, our Student Information System. We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with the Registrar's Office to implement custom class section description functionality within PeopleSoft. From this point forward class notes will be publicly available and searchable through the Pitt PeopleSoft Mobile site.

Having the custom class section descriptions hosted in PeopleSoft allows you to search and register for classes within the same application. The new custom class section descriptions are section number specific and will roll from like term to like term (i.e. Fall to Fall, Spring to Spring). Instructions on searching for courses by course attributes and viewing course descriptions in the new system can be found here.

As the custom class section description functionality of the Dietrich Course Description Site is now available in PeopleSoft, the Course Description site has been retired as of the end of the add-drop period for the Fall 2018 (2191) term.

If you have any questions or concerns about this transition, please do not hesitate to contact helpdesk@pitt.edu.

Thank you,
Dietrich Technology Group
