File your FAFSA
To receive financial aid, you must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, frequently called the FAFSA. The FAFSA can be completed any time after October 1st of each year. Please click on FAFSA to access their website. Pitt-Greensburg recommends you apply as soon as possible to avoid missing their March 1 priority filing deadline.
If you have not completed the Federal Income Tax Return but still would wish to complete the FAFSA, you may use the estimated income information to ensure that your information is received by the Federal Processor before Pitt-Greensburg’s March 1 priority filing deadline.
Within ten business days after completing the FAFSA form online, you will receive an email with a link to your Student Aid Report, also called the SAR. Please notice which signifies that your FAFSA has been processed by the Department of Education. The SAR tells what your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) will be for the academic year. The EFC DOES NOT reflect what you and your family will have to pay out of pocket for your college expenses and DOES NOT reflect what your family can afford to pay out of pocket. The university, the federal government, and the state grant agency use your calculated EFC to determine the types and amounts of financial aid that you will receive. Please review your SAR and confirm that it is accurate. Changes can be made to the SAR by logging back onto the FAFSA’s website.
Please keep copies of your FAFSA documents in a safe place.
You must complete the FAFSA form each year if you wish to apply for any financial aid, including Stafford and PLUS loans. The deadline for students returning each year from Pitt-Greensburg has a filing deadline of May 1.
Please use the University of Pittsburgh code: 00815. All five campuses within the Pitt system use the same code.
Activate your Pitt Computer Account
To activate your Pitt account, refer to the letter or email from Pitt IT that you received at the time you applied to Pitt for login credentials and instructions. If you no longer have this information, please contact the University Technology Helpdesk at 412-624-4357. The Helpdesk is open 24/7 to serve you.
Your Pitt email account is the primary way that we will communicate with you. Be sure to check your Pitt email regularly.
Submit Final High School and College Transcripts
Pitt-Greensburg Admissions requires that you send your final semester college transcript upon completion of your semester in order to receive transfer credit for your recent coursework.
Those documents can be faxed to 724-836-7471 or mailed to the Admissions Office:
The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg
Office of Admissions
150 Finoli Drive
Greensburg, PA 15601
**Failure to submit your final high school transcript prior to the beginning of the fall semester may result in rescinding admission or a hold being placed on your university account.

Advising and Scheduling Information
Academic advising is an essential component of your education. We are here to provide ongoing guidance and support throughout your college journey.
Academic advising at Pitt-Greensburg includes personalized advising from our team of full-time professional advisors, as well as faculty in your field of study. Advisors also work closely with the Office of Career Services, the Learning Resource Center, and the Pitt Greensburg faculty.
Your first advising appointment will be with one of the professional advisors in the Academic Advising Center, 110 Millstein Library. The advisor will review your previous coursework, explain your transfer credits, discuss your academic plans and goals, and help you schedule your classes. Additional information and resources, designed to help you make a successful transition to Pitt-Greensburg, will be provided in a one-credit class called Transfer Seminar, which you will take your first semester.
To schedule your advising appointment, please call 724-836-9940. To ensure that your student account is fully activated, please schedule this appointment at least one week after you have paid your tuition deposit.
To help us help you, please be sure to send official college transcripts from each college or university you have attended previously. It is essential that the transcripts arrive at least three business days prior to your advising appointment to allow time for the transfer credit evaluation process.
Special note about business operations during COVID: Most advising appointments are currently conducted virtually, using MS Teams, Zoom, or by phone.
We look forward to working with you and can’t wait to assist you in your academic journey!
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.
• Credit Cards - While the University does not accept credit card payments directly, we have arranged for a third-party vendor to accept Discover Card, MasterCard, and Visa when payment is made online through PittPAY. You will be charged a non-refundable service fee of 2.75% by the vendor for this service. This fee will be in addition to tuition, fee, room, and board payments when you choose to pay by credit card.
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.
