Academic Catalog 2020-2021

Tuition Payment

Students are charged tuition according to their enrollment status. An undergraduate student taking a graduate course applicable to his or her undergraduate degree is charged at the undergraduate rate. A graduate student taking an undergraduate course is charged tuition at the graduate rate.

Terms of Payment

Bills are payable by personal or certified check, money order, VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, debit cards featuring the NYCE symbol, or wire transfer in advance of each term. We will no longer accept credit cards in person or over the phone. All credit card transactions will be accepted online only. All credit and debit card payments must be made online through the myPratt portal. Checks should be made payable to Pratt Institute. Payment is also accepted online. There is a 2.5 percent convenience fee charged with each credit card transaction. Library fines, lost ID cards, and fees not charged to your student account do not incur the fee. Pratt Card transactions also do not incur the fee. E-checks are free.

Deferred Payment Plan (Fall and Spring)

The Tuition Installment Plan, managed by Nelnet, provides a way to pay educational expenses through manageable monthly installments instead of paying one lump sum. It is not a loan; therefore, no interest is charged. The fee is $115 per semester. Open enrollment begins April 15 and you have a choice of the 3-, 4-, or 5-month plans.

The monthly installments can be automatically drafted from the student’s bank checking account, eliminating the need to write a check each month. Nelnet will provide the student with an easy-to-use worksheet to assist in budget­ing educational expenses for the year. A semester-based plan is also available.
