Student Accounts

The Office of Student Accounts assists students and their families in meeting their financial obligation to the University. Our office is responsible for the billing and collection of student charges.

Billing Information

Students registered for 12 to 18 credits in the Fall and Spring terms are regarded as full-time students, and are assessed the current undergraduate "flat" tuition rate. Students registered for 11.5 or fewer credits are considered part-time, and are billed on a per-credit basis. Students registered for more than 18 credits will be charged for each additional credit that exceeds their full-time "flat" tuition rate. During the Summer term, all students are billed on a per-credit basis.

Account Summary

When you login to PittPAY you land on the Account Summary tab.  You can quickly see if you have a balance due, and for which term(s), net of anticipated aid, and net of any balance on a payment plan. Pending financial aid, although awarded to you, cannot be credited to your account until you have fully satisfied the requirements of the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid. 

You will also have access to create and maintain Authorized Users and eRefunds profiles, as well as other functions that provide useful information to assist you in managing your financial obligations. 

Account Activity

The Account Activity tab in PittPAY provides an up to the minute status of all of the activity on your student account.  Users can print an official Statement of Account by Term to provide to your employer, 529 plan, scholarship agency, or others who may need it to reimburse you for tuition costs.

Payment Plan

Please refer to PittPAY for more information.


Amounts received that are more than your charges will be refunded to you automatically, unless restrictions require that excess amounts be returned to the source. Federal regulations prohibit the University from applying Title IV funds (Direct Loans, Pell, Perkins, SEOG) to an account until 10 days prior to the first day of class for the period for which the funds are issued. We cannot issue a refund related to Direct Loans or other guaranteed student loans until the loan funds have been applied to your account.  Sign up for eRefunds since it is the fastest, most secure way we can get our refunds to you.  Without it, refunds take longer to reach you because they are issued by paper check and sent to the home address in the student system.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to part-time students (taking at least six credits per term) and to full-time students. For more information visit Financial Aid or call 724- 836-9881.

Financial Obligation

The University of Pittsburgh has the right to withhold services, access to academic records, including but not limited to transcripts and diplomas, and will refuse to accept registrations for current and future terms if a student defaults on any financial obligation unless repayment arrangements have been made that are satisfactory to the Treasurer of the University of Pittsburgh or his designate.

For your convenience, each term’s balance and due date can be monitored in PittPAY on the Account Summary and Account Activity tabs.  Periodic Balance Due Notifications are sent by email and text to the students and their Authorized Users from when there is a balance due on the student account.  To view and edit your email and mobile phone number settings for these notifications, login to PittPay, select Actions, then Manage Notifications.

As soon as you make an online payment in PittPay, your balance due will be updated to reflect the payments.  You can view your payment receipt in Transaction History.  Late fees, collection costs, and financial holds are placed on past due accounts.

Making Payments

Pay Online

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 Visa, Discover Card and MasterCard when payment is made online through PittPAY. You will be charged a non-refundable convenience fee by the vendor for this service. This fee will be in addition to tuition, fee, housing, and meal payments when you choose to pay by credit card.

Read the PittPAY guide for more information.

Pay by Mail

Log into PittPAY and select the Account Activity tab.  Use the print options on that page to generate a Term Statement.  Mail your check, together with the Remittance Form from the bottom of the statement, to the address printed on the Remittance Form.  Please print the student ID number on the memo line of the check and mail your payment at least seven days prior to the due date to avoid a late payment fee.
