|Financial Aid and Anticipated Aid on My Account|
Federal regulations require the University wait until 10 days before the official start of each term to post scholarships, grants, and loans to students’ accounts. Also, students have requirements to meet (see below) before their aid can be applied to the account. In the meantime, most aid will be displayed as Anticipated Aid in PittPAY on the eBill and Current Account Details screens. See the instructions at the top of Current Account Details for an explanation of what to pay by the due date when you have Anticipated Aid on your account.
Your Aid Requirements:
What is included in Anticipated Aid?
What is NOT included in Anticipated Aid?
When does Anticipated Aid get disbursed?
Aid begins to post to students’ accounts 10 days before the official start of each term, but remember that loans will only post if the student has completed all of their aid requirements, above. Also, Anticipated Aid for loans will expire if the student waits too long to complete their requirements; this will cause an increase in what the student owes on Current Account Details in PittPAY.
What if the student has an anticipated credit balance?
If the Anticipated Aid is greater than the amount a student owes for a term, an anticipated credit balance will exist. Once aid is disbursed, the excess will be refunded automatically. In short, refunds cannot be processed for anticipated credit balances, only for actual credit balances.
