Authorized Users

Students can authorize parents, guardians, spouses, and others access to PittPAY.  Authorized Users receive email notifications when a balance is due, can make online payments, enroll in an optional payment plan, and generate statements on demand for submitting to employers, 401K, 529 Plans, etc. for tuition reimbursement. The Student Payment Center can only discuss account details with individuals who are set up as Authorized Users in PittPAY.

Payment Plans

You may pay your balance due in full by your due date, or you can elect to enroll in a PittPAY Payment Plan and pay in installments over time instead. Our optional Payment Plan is designed to help families spread out balance due on the student account over a series of regular installments. You will be refunded the credit balance on your student account automatically once refunding begins each term.

eRefunds

A credit balance can exist on your student account when loans, scholarships and other payments, such as 529 or College Savings Plan payments, are applied and cover more than the balance owed, or when you make registration changes that reduce what you owe. You will be refunded the credit balance on your student account automatically once refunding begins each term.

Accepting Aid at Pitt

Students must accept their loans every academic year so the loans can appear as Anticipated Aid on the student’s account, reducing the balance due. Watch the video on how to accept, reduce or decline your loans.
