WINTERVILLE—The Pitt Community College Cashier’s Office is reminding students who sign up for spring classes that they have the option of paying for tuition and fees through a payment plan.

Students who register between Oct. 1 and Nov. 20 have until Dec. 3 at 5 p.m. to pay for courses before their schedules are deleted. While traditional payment options are still available, so is an installment plan through Nelnet Business Solutions.

“Payment plans for Spring 2019 are now open and are available to be set up through Jan. 9,” said Tracey Yarborough, PCC Accounts Receivable/Cashier Supervisor. “The earlier students sign up, the more monthly payments available as well as smaller payment amounts each month.”

Yarborough said students interested in the payment plan option can sign up by logging into their myPittCC accounts and clicking on “Payment Plans” on the financial information page.

That option, Yarborough said, requires a $25-nonrefundable enrollment fee and 25 percent down payment on tuition and fees once students sign up. Students who utilize this option by Nov. 8 will then have five additional payments to make on tuition and fees. After that, the number of installments decreases while the amount per payment rises.

PCC Registrar Angela Cline says students wanting to pay online can do so by logging into their myPittCC accounts and clicking the “PCC Services” tab. She said they may also pay in person at the Cashier’s Office inside the Craig F. Goess Student Center.

Students who have applied for financial aid must have a finalized award for the 2019 Spring Semester in place by the Dec. 3 payment deadline to secure their schedules, Cline said. Those who don’t, she added, must pay out-of-pocket and wait for reimbursement through financial aid, if it is approved.

Cline noted that students have real-time access to their financial aid records through myPittCC. By clicking on “FA Status,” they can view current details about their awards, whether FAFSAs have been received, if additional documentation is requested, and whether satisfactory academic progress has been made to continue receiving financial aid assistance.

The 2019 Spring Semester at PCC begins Jan. 7.
