Anyone who has been awarded a Federal Direct Loan (Subsidized, Unsubsidized, and/or PLUS Loans), or Nursing, Pharmacy, Health Professions, or Institutional Loans must accept each loan every academic year so the loans will appear as Anticipated Aid on the Account Summary and Account Activity tabs in PittPAY. Anticipated Aid reduces the amount you owe. You may also want to decline or reduce the amount of your loans.

Only accepted loans appear on the student account as Anticipated Aid. These are indicated by the word “Anticipated” in the date column of the Account Activity details. The credit you are given for Anticipated Aid will expire if you wait too long to complete all of your aid requirements. Check your aid requirements carefully to be sure you have completed all that apply to you.
