529 Plans-The HUB - Carnegie Mellon University

529 Plans

The university considers 529 payments to be student payments making them subject to the same due dates as any other student payment. 

529 Plans are not considered sources of outside support, as funds originated with the student’s family.

529 Payment Procedures

Students should follow the steps below to ensure proper processing of 529 plan payments:

  1. Download your upcoming semester course schedule and invoice on SIO and send the documents to the 529 Plan Administrator. CMU does not invoice 529 plans directly. These plans can accept the student invoice from the student/parent directly.
  2. Review student account activity on SIO to monitor for payment arrival. 

529 Payment Remission

529 Plan checks should reference the student’s name, Andrew ID and invoice number if possible. 529 checks should be made payable to Carnegie Mellon University and sent to:
