Parent Payment Instructions


PSU utilizes a third party to process payments for tuition and housing and to enroll in installment payment plans.  Since this is a separate website, students must authorize a Parent PIN to allow parents access to pay. This is a separate process from the GUS-based “Authorize Release of University Records (eProxy)”.   When making a payment on behalf of a student for the first time, please watch this instructional video and see the step by step instructions below.

  • Step 2: Parent - How to Activate Parent Payment Access

Student Instructions:

  1. From the PSU Home Page, click on “Login”, then “GUS Login”.

  3. Once you are logged into GUS, click on “Student Accounts” on the left side of the page.
  4. Next select “View Statements / Make Payments”.

  7. Fill in the requested information: “Parent PIN”  - enter the desired Parent Login name

“Email Address” - enter the Parent’s email address

“Confirm Email Address” – enter the Parent’s email address again

“Add a note to the welcome email” – this is a personalize message to your parents from you.

Then click the “OK” button

Parent Instructions: 

  1. Log into your email account. A message should appear with the subject “(your student’s name) has created an account for you at Pittsburg State University.”  This email will have your Parent PIN and temporary password.  Click on the link provided in the email.
  2. The link has now taken you to the CASHNet website for Parents. Enter your Parent PIN and password that was provided in the email and click the Login button.
  3. Enter the password that was provided in the email account in the “Old Password” box. Select a new password that has at least 8 characters, 2 letters and 2 non-letters.  Type the new password in the “Enter New Password” and “Confirm Password” boxes.  Click the Submit button.
