Tuition and Mandatory fee rates vary, depending on the student’s enrollment status.

Undergraduate students are considered to be part-time if they are enrolled for less than 12 credits.  Part-time students are charged tuition on a per credit basis, as well as part-time fees.  Full-time students are enrolled for 12-18 credits, and charged a flat rate for tuition and full-time fees.  Undergraduate students enrolled for more than 18 credits are charged the flat rate tuition plus per credit for each credit that exceeds 18.

Graduate students are considered to be part-time if they are enrolled for less than 9 credits.  Part-time students are charged tuition on a per credit basis, as well as part-time fees.  Full-time students are enrolled for 9-15 credits, and charged a flat rate for tuition and full-time fees.  Graduate students enrolled for more than 15 credits are charged the flat rate tuition plus per credit for each credit that exceeds 15.

It is not unusual for students to register for classes over a period of days.  When that happens, their tuition and fees may be recomputed as their enrollment changes from part-time to full-time.  Tuition and fee charges may be added to the student account as the student adds classes to their schedule.  If that is the case, there will be a plus sign next to the amount displayed for tuition and fees on the Account Activity tab in PittPAY.  Expanding the amount displayed will provide the incremental charge details, by date, that sum to amounts associated with tuition and fees.
