  • Pace University offers payment plans accessible through the Payment Portal. These plans enable students or their authorized user to pay scheduled installments toward tuition, fees, and housing. Students and families may find installment payments more manageable than a single lump payment each semester. These interest-free payment plans are not loans; therefore, there are no credit checks. These plans are available for the fall and spring terms in monthly installments and there is a weekly plan option available for summer terms.

    All students are eligible to take advantage of these payment plans. Please note there is a non-refundable enrollment fee each term, and students must re-enroll in a plan each semester. The link to the Payment Plans will detail payment due dates, type of payments accepted, (credit cards, web checks, ACH payments), as well as fees associated with late payments.

    Payment Plans are only available online. If you enroll in a plan after the start date, back payments are required. After enrolling into a plan, a late fee of $25 may be assessed if an installment amount is not satisfied by the due date. There is no late fee for late enrollment that requires back payments upon enrollment..

    Authorized Users

    For students who wish to grant access to an “authorized” user, the portal will provide the option for students to send an invitation email to whomever the student “authorizes”. The invitation will include access to the student account information and submit a payment on the student’s behalf.

Pace University does not endorse a specific provider or policy and recommends the careful review of the terms and conditions of any policy prior to enrollment.

1098-T Tax Documents

In previous years, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) we billed to your student account for the calendar (tax) year. Due to a change to institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we will report in Box 1 the amount of payments towards QTRE during the year.

The 1098-T form is available to all Pace University students who had qualifying account transactions during calendar year 2020 to comply with the American Opportunity Credit, formerly the Hope Credit and Lifetime Learning Credit. For specific instructions, refer to the IRS publication 970: Tax Benefits for Higher Ed (PDF) or for all IRS forms.

  • You can view and print your 1098-T form online through MyPace Portal. See the instructions below.

    By law, Pace University is required to furnish form 1098-T each tax year to enrolled students who are US citizens or permanent residents. The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 (TRA97) established education tax credits for taxpayers. The 1098-T form may assist you in determining eligibility for education tax credits or deductions.

    The information that universities are required to provide on Form 1098-T does not necessarily correspond to the information you may need to calculate any education tax credits or deductions for which you may be eligible. Universities are required to report payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses in the calendar year (Box 1).

    The IRS requires universities to report on a calendar year, rather than academic year. Therefore, the amount reported in Box 1 includes any amounts billed in calendar year 2020 for January Intersession 2021 or Spring Semester 2021.

    The IRS requires universities to reduce the amount of billed charges by any tuition waiver proceeds. If you received any type of tuition waiver during the calendar year, you will see a reduction in the amount reported in Box 1.
