Billing Process

Electronic Billing

Students are billed electronically and eBills are sent to the student’s Pitt email address after registration for classes. Students must pay tuition by the due date on the invoice or else be liable for late fees. The University may also place a financial hold on overdue accounts.

eBills are posted on or about the 20th of every month and are due on the 17th of the following month.

Optional Payment Plan

Under some circumstances, students may be approved for three- or four-installment payments in the fall or spring term. Click here for more information, including dates of payments.


Students who drop courses by the term’s add/drop deadline may have their tuition for the term adjusted if they are part-time students, or if the drop changes their status from full-time to part-time.


To withdraw from a class after the official add/drop period while still enrolled in other classes, you must process a Monitored Withdrawal Request Form through the dean's office of the school offering the class. If you wish to drop all of your classes after the end of the add/drop period, you must resign from the term. See resignation information.

After the deadline for submitting a Monitored Withdrawal form, you will have to ask the instructor of the course to assign a W grade at the end of the term. The instructor will have to post an interim grade (usually a G) on the course roster, and then change the G to a W using a Grade Change Form. W grades do not count toward a student's degree, grade point average, or academic progress for purposes of financial aid eligibility. There is no tuition adjustment associated with a class withdrawal.

Resignation Refunds

Adjustments to tuition charges resulting from official resignation (dropping of all courses for the term) are based on the effective date of resignation and in accordance with the federally mandated calculation. If you decide to resign, call the resignation hotline immediately to leave your name and contact information (412-624-7585) as the refund amount is calculated from the date of resignation.
