The Office of the University Registrar WILL NOT release academic information over the phone nor electronically; not even to parents/legal guardians whose dependents have signed the Waiver To Release Educational Records. We do not have a mechanism to verify one's identity over the phone nor electronically.
We recognize that this limitation may cause occasional inconvenience to a student, a student's family, and other interested parties, but we are bound by law to protect our students' rights to privacy.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)/Student Release affords students certain rights with respect to their education records:
(1) The right to inspect and review the student's educational records within 45 days of the day The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford receives a request for access. Students should submit to the Registrar written requests that identify the record(s) they wish to inspect. The Registrar will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the Registrar's Office, the Registrar shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed. Educational records are defined as those records related to a student and maintained by the institution or a party acting for the institution. The term "educational records" does not include the following:
Records of instructional, supervisory, administrative, and certain educational personnel which are in the sole possession of the maker thereof, and are not accessible or revealed to any other individual except a substitute who performs on a temporary basis the duties of the individual who made the records.
Records maintained by a law enforcement unit of the college that were created by that law enforcement unit for the purpose of law enforcement.
Records relating to individuals who are employed by the college, which are made and maintained in the normal course of business, relate exclusively to individuals in their capacity as employees, and are not available for use for any other purpose.
Records relating to a student which are
(a) created or maintained by a physician, psychiatrist, or other recognized professional or paraprofessional, acting in his or her professional capacity or assisting in a paraprofessional capacity;
(b) used solely in connection with the provision of treatment to the student; and not disclosed to anyone other than individuals providing such treatment, so long as the records can be personally reviewed by a physician or other appropriate professional of the student's choice. "Treatment" in this context does not include remedial educational activities or activities which are part of the program of instruction at the college.
Records of the college which contain only information relating to a person after that person is no longer a student at the institution.
(2) The right to request the amendment of the student's educational records that the student believes are inaccurate or misleading. Students may ask The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading. They should write The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, it will notify the student of the decision and advise the student of his or her right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when he or she is notified of the right to a hearing.
(3) The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student's educational records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an educational record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.
(4) The right to request that The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford not release directory information including student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, dates of attendance, degrees, and honors. Requests to withhold directory information should be made in writing to the Registrar within two weeks of the beginning of the semester.
(5) The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA are:
Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW., Washington, DC, 20202-4605

The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford holds one annual commencement ceremony that is held immediately following the completion of the spring semester. Students that graduated the prior fall semester, are graduating the current spring or anticipate graduating the upcoming June or August are invited to that commencement ceremony. (Example: December 2022, April, June and August 2023 graduates are invited to the 2023 ceremony held that spring). Information about the ceremony, ordering regalia and tickets will be sent to students that applied around February. This information will come from Student Affairs.
A small reception is held the Sunday prior to final exams for students that will finish their requirements and earn their degree upon completion of the fall semester. These students are invited back for the formal commencement ceremony in the spring but we like to recognize them for their achievements before they leave the university.
Tuition rates are based on whether or not you are a permanent resident of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. A higher tuition rate is charged to non-residents. If you have lived in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for 12 consecutive months immediately prior to enrollment at any college or university in the state, you may be eligible for reduced tuition rates. To qualify, you must also be a citizen of the United States or have a U. S. immigrant/permanent resident visa. If you are under 21 years of age, you are presumed to have the same domicile as your parents.
Individuals who meet at least one of the following qualifications are eligible for Pennsylvania resident status for tuition billing purposes under Commonwealth of Pennsylvania PL 1226, No. 287, as amended (the “Act”).

Did you change your name recently? Please notify us so that we can update your name change on the university computer system. Any name change requires documentation, such as a copy of social security card or court order. You can request a name change by completing the Change form, print the completed form, sign it, attach a copy of the pertinent documentation and return it to the Enrollment Services office. Fees may be assessed in cases where historical records are affected.
ADDRESS AND TELEPHONE NUMBER CHANGES
If your mailing address, permanent address or telephone number changes, it is important that you notify us immediately. Failure to change an address may result in you not receiving University mailings. You can update your address and telephone number by completing the Change form, print the completed form, sign it, and return it to the Enrollment Services office.
Students, faculty, and staff can refer to themselves by a “preferred/chosen name” other than their legal given or first and/or middle name. A preferred/chosen name can be used in the course of University business and education. Only your first and/or middle name may be replaced by a preferred/chosen name; your last/family name must remain the same as the full legal last name in the University records system.
There may be circumstances in which a preferred/chosen name cannot be used, such as:
- When the use of the legal name is required by University business or legal need.
- When University information systems, databases, and processes require the display of the legal name.
Where there are educational, employment, security or other interests, such as government or legal requirements, you should be prepared to disclose your legal name to university officials.
To change your preferred/chosen name:
- Login to accounts.pitt.edu.
- Next to Set Preferred/Chosen Name, click yes.
- Enter your preferred first and middle (optional) name, then click Update Contact Information.
Note: If you have both your display name and preferred name set, Outlook (Exchange) will use the display name.
You may pay your balance due in full by your due date, or you can elect to enroll in a PittPAY Payment Plan and pay in installments over time instead. Our optional Payment Plan is designed to help families spread out the balance due on the student account over a series of regular installments.
Depending on the date you enroll in a Payment Plan, you may be eligible for up to six installments for fall or spring terms, or up to 3 installments for summer term. Payment Plan installments will be automatically deducted on the 5th of each month from the bank account or credit card you specify when enrolling in the plan.
- All students who owe more than $300 per term qualify.
- Authorized Users can enroll in a payment plan on behalf of their student.
- Students and Authorized Users must be willing to allow automatic withdrawals from a personal U.S. checking account or scheduled charges to debit or credit card.
- The student account must be in good standing. If the student has past due balances, he or she must contact University Collections to find out about alternative payment arrangements.
Payment Plan Ownership
Students or one of the student's Authorized Users can enroll in a Payment Plan in PittPAY. If the student enrolls, the student is owner of the plan; if an Authorized User enrolls, that individual is the owner of the plan. This is important because only the owner of the plan can change the payment method. Both the student and ALL of the student’s Authorized Users will receive Payment Plan notifications by email.
Cost to Participate
There is a $45 non-refundable sign-up fee for the Fall, Spring, and Summer plans. The sign-up fee is deducted from your bank account or charged to your debit or credit card as soon as you complete the enrollment process in PittPAY.
Enrollment Process Overview
To enroll in a payment plan, log into PittPAY above and select the Payments > Payment Plans tab. You will see the payment plan options available to you. The earlier you enroll in a plan, the more installments you can have, so be sure to note the expiration date on each offer. Your installment schedule will update dynamically as you follow the prompts and enter your information in the Budget Worksheet. Once you decide to activate a plan, you will receive an email from PittPAY confirming your enrollment. Login to PittPAY any time to see the status of your plan.
Students can have only one active payment plan at a time during an academic term. Even if a student has more than one Authorized User, they may only have one payment plan for a payment plan period. For example, two Authorized Users cannot both have a fall term Payment Plan for the same student.
Paying with eCheck, Credit or Debit Card
You can select "eCheck" as your payment method to avoid paying the non-refundable 2.75% service charge associated with each transaction paid by debit or credit card. If you choose to make your monthly installments by credit or debit card, you will be charged a non-refundable 2.75% convenience fee for each transaction.
Payment Plan Rebalancing
Since you can enroll in a Fall Payment Plan before the University has determined tuition, fees, or room and meal plan rates for a new academic year (this typically does not occur until mid-July) and before you have registered for classes for any term, you may need to estimate your Payment Plan Balance in the early months. Later, once tuition and fees are actually posted to your student account, the Payment Plan will switch from the "Estimated" phase to the "Actual" phase and we will periodically rebalance your Payment Plan to match the student account balance.
For example, if the charges on your student account decrease because you dropped some classes, the Payment Plan balance will also decrease during the monthly rebalancing process. Automatic rebalancing makes sure your student account balance will be paid in full by the end of the Payment Plan period.
You will receive multiple notifications before any installment is processed to give you an opportunity to make sure sufficient funds are available to process each upcoming installment. Once your payment plan is in the Actual Phase, if an installment fails for any reason, the Payment Plan will be automatically terminated. This might occur if a credit card transaction is declined, an eCheck is returned for insufficient funds, or your bank account is closed. You will also be charged a $25 non-refundable fee for each failed payment plan installment. If you wish to enroll in a new plan after this occurs, you may be charged another non-refundable sign-up fee.
Amounts received in excess of your charges will be refunded to you automatically, unless restrictions require that excess amounts be returned to the source. Refunds cannot be mailed until funds are received and credited to your account. Federal regulations prohibit the University from applying loans, grants, or scholarships to the student accounts until 10 days before the first day of any academic term. Fall term refunding follows that schedule, and starts immediately after aid begins applying to student accounts. Financial Aid for Spring term begins to disburse on January 1, and refunding begins on January 2.
Refunding is an automatic process each weekday, but it is suspended during the first two weeks of fall and spring terms during the add/drop period. After confirming that they have a credit balance on their student account, students can still request their refunds when the automated process has been suspended by emailing email@example.com, and including their seven digit student ID number in the email. Please note, refunds are not issued on anticipated credit balances – only actual balances that result after anticipated aid is disbursed to apply to the account.
When you sign up for eRefunds in PittPAY, you designate the personal U.S. checking or savings account where you want your student refunds to go. With eRefunds, your money will be available in your bank account within 2-3 business days, and address changes won’t delay your refund. This is especially important if you live on campus or away from home.
- Login to PittPAY above and click “Select eRefund preference” from the Account Summary tab.
- Enter the routing and account number of the checking or savings account where you want your refunds to go.
If you do not sign up for eRefunds the credit balances on your student account will be sent by paper check and mailed to your home address. This may not be where you currently reside or intend to reside in the future, so eRefunds is the best way to be sure you receive your money quickly, directly in your bank account, regardless of address changes
If you have never attended the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, or if you wish to be readmitted, you must be accepted and admitted through the Office of Admissions, 814-362-7555 before you can register for classes. After you are admitted, you will be assigned an advisor who will assist you in planning a program of study. You must be officially registered for all classes you attend. Your advisor must remove your Advising Hold once you have met with them to go over your course selections.
Registration And Add/Drop Form Processing
Students are assigned an Enrollment Appointment (date and time they may begin registering for classes). This Appointment is determined by the number of credits a student has earned. Students should access the PeopleSoft/HighPoint CX task through myPitt.
Students may find their Enrollment Appointment through their Student Center Dashboard. Students may self-enroll in classes once they have met with their advisor, their Advising Hold is lifted and the day and time of their Enrollment Appointment has been reached. Students also must have taken care of any other holds they may have that would prevent registration.
If a student needs assistance registering in courses, they must complete an Enrollment Add/Drop Form listing the classes they need to add and you must list your advisor email so they may sign their approval. The completed form will automatically be forwarded to Enrollment Services in the Hangar Building to be processed.
Students may add or drop classes through Student Center Dashboard up through the last day to add or drop. This deadline is published in each semester’s schedule of classes.
Here is a guide with step by step instructions for accessing PeopleSoft/Highpoint CX for enrolling, viewing your degree progress, viewing midterm and final grades as well as other tools such as Degree Planner. https://www.registrar.pitt.edu/sites/default/files/Campus_Experience_Student_Guide_2.pdf
Students will have an extended drop period. Under special circumstances, an undergraduate may be eligible to drop a course in the third week of fall or spring term. Students must meet all of the following criteria to drop a course during this time:
- Undergraduate course
- Fall or spring semester
- Student must remain in full-time status after dropping the course
- Student’s advisor must provide permission to drop through an Enrollment Form and this will be processed only by the Registrar (Hangar Building) or Director of Academic Advising (Hanley Library)
To withdraw from a class after the official end of the add/drop period while still enrolled in other classes, you must process a a Class Withdrawal Form. You must include your advisor’s email so they may approve the request. The form will then be sent to the Enrollment Services Office to process. If approved, the grade "W" will be recorded on your grade report and transcript for that course. "W" grades do not count toward a student's degree, quality point average, and academic progress for purposes of financial aid eligibility. There is no tuition adjustment associated with a course withdrawal. If you wish to drop all of your courses after the end of the add/drop period, you must resign from the term.
Full-Time vs. Part-Time
If you are an undergraduate student registered for 12 to 18 credits in the fall and spring terms you are regarded as a full-time student. You are assessed the current "flat" tuition rate for your school. If you are an undergraduate student registered for 11.5 or fewer credits, you are considered part-time, and you are billed on a per-credit basis.
Undergraduate students are not permitted to register for more than 18 credits, without the permission of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.
Undergraduate students who register for more than 18 credits will be billed on a per-credit basis for each additional credit that exceeds their full "flat" tuition rate.
You are billed on a per-credit basis in the summer term.
Once per term, a Class Roster is provided to each of your instructors. If the instructor does not read the names listed on the roster to the class, check with him or her to make sure that your name appears on the roster. If you are attending a class but your name does not appear on the roster, you should contact the Enrollment Services Office immediately. You must be enrolled in a class in order to earn credit for the class.
Please note, that a class for which you are “waitlisted” does not guarantee you an enrollment. A seat must open up and you must then be moved into the class in order to be registered in the class.
Termination of Registration - Dropping All Classes (Resignation)
After the end of the add/drop period, students who wish to terminate their enrollment for all courses must do so by processing a resignation form. A resignation form is generated for the student to complete and sign. Full-time students must meet with the Interim Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs to be review the resignation process and complete the exit interview. This form is submitted to the Enrollment Services Office for processing as part of the student’s permanent file.
Failing to attend the classes for which a student is registered, or failing to notify the appropriate academic and administrative offices of nonattendance, is not considered an official resignation. Students who fail to follow proper procedures for termination of their registration are responsible for all tuition and fees assessed for the term or session. A student who stops attending a course and does not complete the withdrawal or resignation procedures may be assigned an F grade. The effective date of your resignation will normally be the date you notify the University. Your charges may be prorated depending on the date of resignation.
Title IV Refund Policy
Adjustments to tuition charges resulting from official resignations are based on the effective date of resignation and in accordance with the federally mandated calculation.
The calculation is based on the period of enrollment completed. That percentage is computed by dividing the total number of calendar days in the term into the number of calendar days completed, as of the date of student notification. The percentage of Title IV assistance to which the student is entitled (has "earned") is equal to this percentage of the term completed, up to 60%. If the resignation occurs after 60% of the term is completed, the percentage is equal to 100%. The amount of Title IV aid which must be returned is based on the percentage of "unearned" aid. That percentage is computed by subtracting earned aid from 100%. The University is required to return the lesser of 1) the unearned aid percentage applied to institutional charges or 2) the unearned aid percentage applied to the total Title IV aid received. The student is required to return the difference between the amount of unearned aid and the amount returned by the University. If the student (or parents in the case of PLUS loans) is required to return a portion or all of their loan proceeds, the calculated amount is to be repaid according to the loan's terms. Funds are returned to the following Title IV sources in order of priority: 1. Unsubsidized Federal Family Education Loans (FFEL) 2. Subsidized Federal Family Education Loans (FFEL) 3. Federal Perkins Loans 4. FFEL PLUS loans 5. Federal Pell Grants 6. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) program 7. Other Title IV assistance for which a return of funds is required 8. Other federal, state, private, or institutional financial assistance
Students can access their grades in their PeopleSoft/HighPoint Campus Experience (CX), which can be accessed via myPitt. At the CX Dashboard, open the My Academics menu and select Grades.
Midterm grades are usually posted in mid-late October for fall semester and late Feb-early March for spring semester. Please check the current academic calendar and notifications sent via email for exact dates each semester.
The deadline for final grades to be posted may be 3-5 days after the last day of classes each semester. Please check the current academic calendar and notifications sent via email for exact dates each semester.
You may apply to relocate to the Pittsburgh campus (or any regional campus) during the term in which, upon completion, you will meet the requirements listed below.
