Plaid Parents-The HUB - Carnegie Mellon University

Welcome, Parents & Families!

We understand that parents and families are an integral part of a student's educational experience. The HUB makes it a priority to keep parents and families of enrolled students informed about procedures and policies. By using the Plaid Parents webpage, it is our hope that parents and families will find answers to their registration, financial aid, and billing and payment questions. Learn more about The HUB.
