Students seeking a special invoice or a payment verification document should complete the Student Account Detail Request form.
Student Account Adjustments
Tuition charges apply to student accounts after registration. If courses are added before the drop/add period, known as 10th day, tuition adjustments will be made the following day. If courses are dropped before 10th day, the tuition charges may not be reflected until immediately after 10th day. View the Academic Calendar for dates.
Credits to Student Accounts
Most scholarship and grant aid is credited to a student’s account after it has been determined by the Student Financial Aid Office. Outside scholarships and third-party payments are only credited to the student account when they are received and processed by the university. The Federal Direct Perkins Loan and other institutional loans are credited to the student account in tandem with scholarships and grants. Promissory notes will need to be signed for these loans or they will be cancelled and the student account charged appropriately.
A Federal Direct Student Loan or a Federal Direct PLUS Loan will not automatically be reflected as a credit to your student account until the loan proceeds have been electronically disbursed through electronic funds transfer (EFT) to Carnegie Mellon. You must apply for these loans. Because of the lender’s origination fee, 49.5% of the annual amount of a Federal Direct Student Loan or 48% of the annual amount of a Federal Direct PLUS Loan will appear on your student account each semester once the funds are disbursed.
