Online Billing/CASHNet Information

As of March 1, 2013, paper copies of student account bills are no longer mailed. The College uses the services of CASHNet to process billing electronically. Electronic statements are generated monthly, at the beginning of the month. Fall charges are posted to the student account in July and will appear on the August bill. Spring charges are posted to the student account in December and will appear on the January bill.

CASHNet provides students and other authorized parties online access to view recent Pitzer College student account bills, review account history, and make electronic (ACH) payments. Going forward, an email will be sent to account holders/authorized users at the beginning of each month to provide notification when new bills are available for viewing on the CASHNet website. The e-bill is a static, point-in-time bill. It will show all activity that occurred up to the billing date. Any transactions that occur after the bill date can be viewed by clicking “Account Activity Detail”. These transactions will appear on your next billing.
