Payment Page for Applicants

Changes to your application on the GPS system are saved automatically each time you work on it. You may return to edit your application at any time, but do not click the "Submit" button until you are completely done. Once you "Submit" you will not be able to edit your application any further. If you accidentally click "Submit" before you are done, email to request that your application be reopened (it may take 24 hours, longer over the weekend).

After you click "submit," the final step is to remit the application fee, using the button below. That will generate an automated email confirming receipt of your payment, which will complete your application (your only confirmation). You may submit the application fee after the deadline, but your application will not be available to PiLA readers until you have remitted. It can take up to 48 hours (longer over the weekend) for payment to register on your application as "received."

Applicants who are Pell Grant recipients or federal financial aid recipients may be eligible for a reduced application fee. To submit your request, email, attaching a legible copy of your current financial aid award letter (not the FAFSA) with a subject line of either "Pell Grant" or "Financial Aid" (whichever applies). We will respond with further instructions.

Applicant Payments

Pay via PayPal (because PiLA is a nonprofit, PayPal automatically shows a "donate" button, but rest assured that your payment will be logged in connection with your application).
