Making Payments

Online Payment Methods

Payments can be made online in PittPAY by students or their Authorized Users, using an eCheck (electronic check), credit or debit card. Once you receive your receipt in PittPAY, you can check the updated balance on the Account Summary and Account Activity tabs.


eCheck is an electronic deduction from a personal U.S. checking account. Payments made in PittPAY by eCheck are offered at no charge to you. You will need the routing and account number from a personal U.S. checking account to process an eCheck payment online.

Credit or Debit Card

While the University does not accept credit or debit card payments directly, we have arranged for a third-party vendor to accept Discover, MasterCard, and Visa online in PittPAY. Note: you will be charged a non-refundable convenience fee of 2.75% by the vendor each time you use a credit or debit card to process a payment in PittPAY. This fee will be in addition to tuition, fee, room, and meal plan charges.  If you are planning to use a debit card linked to a U.S. checking account, consider using the eCheck payment method instead to avoid the 2.75% service fee charged for all debit and credit card transactions in PittPAY.  We are unable to process credit or debit card payments by phone or in person, only online.

Payments By Mail

When mailing a check, please be sure to include the student's full name and seven digit student ID number. Checks can be mailed to the address below:

University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown
450 Schoolhouse Road
125 Blackington Hall
Johnstown, PA 15904

Payments In Person

Cash or check payments can be made in person at the Business Office. 

Payment Plans

 If you would like to pay in installments, you may be interested in enrolling in a PittPAY Payment Plan. This is the only payment option available to pay over time. If you do not enroll in a payment plan, the entire balance is due on the due date.

International Payments

Our international students can make electronic payments by using Flywire. For more information, please visit our International Payments page.
