Student Services

Student Employment

Student Employment assistance is available through the Career Services office at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Please stop in to the Career Office located on the first floor to meet with a Career Advisor or schedule an appointment.

Disability Services

The Art Institutes provide accommodations to qualified students with disabilities. The Office of Disability Support Services assists all qualified students with disabilities in acquiring reasonable and appropriate accommodations and in supporting equal access to services, programs and activities at The Art Institutes.

Students who seek reasonable accommodations should notify the Office of Disability Support Services at 1-855-855-0567 or via email at _TheCenterDSS@edmc.edu of their specific limitations and, if known, their specific requested accommodations. Students will be asked to supply medical documentation of the need for accommodation. Classroom accommodations are not retroactive, but are effective only upon the student sharing approved accommodations with the instructor. Therefore, students are encouraged to request accommodations as early as feasible with The Office of Disability Support Services to allow for time to gather necessary documentation. If you have a concern or complaint in this regard, please contact the Office of Student Conduct and Resolution at studentresolution@edmc.edu. Complaints will be handled in accordance with the school’s Internal Grievance Procedure for Complaints of Discrimination and Harassment.

Veteran & Military Student

The Art Institute of Pittsburgh is proud to have military service members, veterans and their families as part of its campus community. Our student military service members and veterans bring a wealth of experience, professionalism and focus to their chosen programs and to the wider campus. There are a number of resources within the campus as well as in the general community that will assist students on their academic journey. Our VA School Certifying Official will help you understand your VA or military education benefits. Additionally, our Talk One-2-One Student Assistance Program offers financial and credit counseling, relationship support and help with transitional and other challenges. Please visit your Student Services Office to find out about any clubs or organizations specific to military and veteran students.
