Submit AP or IB Test Scores

If you do not report your scores, you may not get the credits that you earned by taking the AP or IB test and you may end up taking unnecessary classes.

Please be sure to have your AP or IB exam scores sent to:
The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg
Office of Academic Advising
150 Finoli Drive

AP and IB Exam scores and equivalent credits are available online »

College in High School

If you have taken ANY college classes while attending high school, make sure that your transcript is sent to Pitt-Greensburg so that we can evaluate what credits may transfer.

Please make sure the college sends the transcript to upgimnow@pitt.edu, faxed to 724-836-7471, sent via Naviance, or mailed to:

The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg
Office of Admissions
150 Finoli Drive
Greensburg, PA 15601

If you have taken any classes at any Pitt campus, we will be able to access your transcript, so you will not need to have those sent to our campus.  Make sure your Admissions Counselor is aware of the credits you have earned at any Pitt campus.

Submit a Final Transcript

Your final official high school transcript indicating a high school graduation date and your final senior grades is required for continuing financial aid eligibility, and to be eligible for eventual degree-awarding. Please arrange with your guidance counselor to have that information sent to our campus.

Those documents can be sent to upgimnow@pitt.edu, faxed to 724-836-7471, sent via Naviance, or mailed to:

Complete Online Placement Exams, Class Registration, and Summer Orientation

You will receive an email to your Pitt email account with instructions on how to complete your online placement exams and your Freshman Survey.  You will also have the opportunity to have a virtual meeting with an academic advisor.  These steps will be used to create your fall class schedule. 

Our tentative plan is to offer an optional, in-person summer orientation program to all first-year students.  This program would take place in July (dates to be determined), offer a number of day-long sessions to choose from, and would be just for incoming students.  Of course, our ability to offer an in-person component will be dependent on a number of factors, since the safety of our students and our community is our top priority.   
 
In addition to the optional in-person component, we will be utilizing an online orientation platform that all new students will complete, consisting of information modules, videos, and quizzes which will help you learn the fundamentals of beginning your first year and prepare you for starting at Pitt-Greensburg.   
 
A number of virtual opportunities for you and your family members will also be offered throughout the summer.  This will include virtual office hours, small group Zoom sessions, webinars by various departments, live and/or recorded sessions by faculty in academic majors, and more.  
 
We will be finalizing our plans soon, so keep an eye on your Pitt email around the beginning of May, when you will be receiving more information about dates and details.

 

Pay Your Bill

Making Payments – If you have a balance due you may pay your balance in full by the due date, or you can elect to enroll in a PittPAY Payment Plan and pay in installments over time instead.  (PittPAY - login to my.pitt.edu and search for "PittPAY.")  Our optional Payment Plan is designed to help families spread out the balance due on the student account over a series of regular installments.  Depending on the date you enroll in a Payment Plan, you may be eligible for up to six installments for fall or spring terms, or up to 3 installments for the summer term. Payment Plan installments will be automatically deducted on the 5th of each month from the bank account or credit card (service fee is applied for this payment option) you specify when enrolling in the plan.  There is a $45 fee to enroll in the payment plan.
 

For your convenience, weekly Balance Due Notifications are sent by email to students and their Authorized Users when there is a balance due on the student account. Due dates can be viewed on the PittPAY account on the Account Summary and Account Activity tabs or at payments.pitt.edu.  Payment must be received by the due dates to avoid a late payment fee.

Payments can be made through PittPAY by either eCheck (electronic check) or credit card.
•  eCheck - Payments made in PittPAY by electronic check, or eCheck, are offered at no charge to you.

Authorized Users

Students can designate parents, guardians, spouses, or others to access their student account in PittPAY as Authorized Users. Students must initiate the process by logging into PittPAY and selecting “Set up Authorized User” by selecting that menu option in PittPAY and following the instructions.  Authorized Users can then log into PittPAY to view the student account details, view and make online payments, enroll in an optional payment plan on the student’s behalf, and generate a statement of account by term. We cannot discuss the student account details with anyone except Authorized Users.
