2/21/2020– On Monday morning 2/24/2020, a new interface will be added to the PrimeRx web app that allows easier searching and selection of catalog items to add to your list of co-curricular activities and events. Additionally, the new report PDF will replace the current report format. The new format lays out your current semester activities in a more user-friendly way to help facilitate discussions with your faculty advisor. This will mean that the PrimeRx web app, will be off-line briefly between 9 and 10AM on Monday for the change.

General Instructions

Login to the PrimeRx web app

Login to the PrimeRx web app is by your Pitt username and password. To create a report, simply choose the semester. The report will show counts for all co-curricular activities you have added to your dashboard, or you have authenticated via a QR code.

Note: your Pitt username, is the part BEFORE @pitt.edu. It is generally three letters and a number (Example zqz49)

QR Codes

The PrimeRx web app uses QR codes to authenticate PrimeRx sponsored event participation and may e used for some didactic activities. All modern smart phones can read a QR code. Do not use the SnapChar QR reader however. The SnapChar reader uses Firefox and that is an unsupported browser.

Supported Browsers

All student activity with the PrimeRx database is via a web interface. You must use a web browser to access the web app. The web app is supported for the following browsers:

  • Internet Explorer 11* or newer
  • Microsoft Edge 38 or newer
  • Safari 10 or newer
  • Chrome 55 or newer

Firefox is not supported at this time.

* If you have IE11 and you are still told the browser is too old, it is because the browser is set to use “compatibility mode.” Here are some instructions for disabling compatibility mode, and you will find other instructions with a simple web search, if these instructions are not clear enough.
