How will I receive my billing statement?

  • All notifications regarding billing statements will be sent electronically to the student's official IUP email address. Students must log in through MyIUP to access IUP EasyPay to obtain their monthly billings statement. Students will also be able to authorize parents and other third parties to view and pay all bills.
  • Payments can be made through our secure online system, IUP EasyPay, by credit card (Visa, Discover, and MasterCard only) or by e-check. The university does not accept credit/debit cards by mail, in person, or over the phone for payment of tuition bills.

How can I pay my bill?

You have four options:

  1. By mail: Payment can be made by check or money order made payable to IUP and mailed to the address indicated on the e-bill. Please include the student ID on the payment.

  2. In person: Checks, money orders, and cash will be accepted.

  3. Credit card online through IUP EasyPay: If paying with either MasterCard, Discover, or Visa, a convenience fee of 2.95 percent will be assessed by our vendor. You will receive two charges on your card: one for IUP and one for the convenience fee from TouchNet.

  4. Electronic check (e-check) online through IUP EasyPay: If paying with an e-check, there will not be an additional convenience fee. There is a five-day waiting period for all checks or e-checks processed after the semester due date.

What if I am having trouble entering PayPath?

Check to see if you have pop-ups enabled. If not, those need to be enabled in order for you to access PayPath.

If you are being asked for login credentials for EasyPay, please contact IT Support to have your account reset.

How can parents/authorized users log in to view and pay the bill?

Students must set up an authorized user in the IUP EasyPay system. Students log in to the IUP EasyPay website via MyIUP and select Authorize User on the navigation bar. IUP EasyPay can also be accessed using the Student Account site.

It is highly recommended that students select parents as authorized users, rather than allowing parents to log in with the student ID and password. Only as an authorized user will parents receive a notification email that a new bill/statement is available.

Each billing cycle, the student and other authorized payers will receive an email notifying them that a bill/statement is available.

Will I have an option for an installment payment plan?

IUP will offer a five-payment, four-payment, three-payment, or two-payment installment plan for the fall and spring semesters.  Late fees may be assessed if waiting to enroll in a three-payment or two-payment plan.  A three-payment and two-payment installment plan will be offered for the summer session. There is a one-time per semester $35 installment payment fee.  There is no payment plan option for Winter.

How often can I view my account?

Students are encouraged to view their daily activity on their accounts regularly. Access is available 24/7.

How will I receive my refunds?

You will be able to see when your refund is processed under your account detail. It is recommended that students complete the online form on MyIUP to receive their refunds through direct deposit. Refunds may be deposited directly into a checking or savings account. Direct deposits will be processed on Monday each week for quick access to student refunds. You can also have your refund deposited into a savings account.

Direct deposits protect against theft, are confidential, and prevent time delays from lost checks. No more waiting for the mail!

If there are special circumstances that prevent you from enrolling in direct deposits, a check can be issued.  Check refunds will be processed on Tuesday and mailed out on Thursday.

Whom do I contact for more information?

If you have questions, you may visit the Office of Student Billing website or call 724-357-2207.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that affords parents the right to have access to their children's education records, the right to seek to have the records amended, and the right to have some control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from the education records. When a student turns 18 years old or enters a postsecondary institution at any age, the rights under FERPA transfer from the parents to the student.

I have a balance on my account. Am I still able to register for the upcoming semester?
