Accessing your OnePratt Account

Once your deposit is processed, you will receive a system-generated email from onekey@pratt.edu containing your Pratt email and password within 1 – 5 business days. Please check spam! If you have not received it after 5 business days, please contact onekey@pratt.edu for assistance.

Deposited students can access our portal, OnePratt, which contains your student financial account, class schedule (after you have registered), our learning management system, and other valuable information.

We recommend you bookmark the OnePratt portal on your personal device! Linked here.

Providing Parent/Sponsor Access

You have the ability to grant a parent, guardian, or financial sponsor the right to access specific information without providing them with your student oneKey login and password. This can be done through Self Service once you log in to one.pratt.edu and select the Self Service icon from the Academics page. Once in Self Service, click on your user name on the top right, then “View/Add Proxy Access.” If the person is not already in your records, you must first request that your parent/sponsor be attached by submitting this form. Full instructions for this function can be found in the Self Service Proxy for Students onePratt knowledge article. Note: If your parents pay your bills, it is essential that they access your financial account online as Pratt does not send print bills to continuing students.

International students whose first language is not English will be required to take our in-house English Placement Test to assess the level of English proficiency unless they submit a TOEFL score of at least 600 or an IELTS score of 7.5. You may be required to take Intensive English classes concurrently with your degree program courses.

Billing/Payment Options

Upon completion of registration, the Student Accounting Office will prepare the appropriate invoice. Invoices include all charges, pending financial aid and payment received to date. Full payment of the balance due, establishment of a monthly payment plan with Nelnet, or certification of financial aid (i.e. student loans, parent loans, alternative loans, or scholarships, etc.) to cover the balance due must be in place prior to the due date on the invoice. Failure to pay on time may result in the assessment of late fees.    

One-time online payment for the full payment of the balance due can be made through Nelnet Campus Commerce (Nelnet). E-checks (automatic deductions from your checking account) are processes with no additional fees. If using a credit or debit card, there is an additional fee that is disclosed once you enter the card information.

Relocating to the Brooklyn campus

You must complete the first two years at Pratt Munson before you will be able to relocate to Brooklyn. You may not relocate to Brooklyn after completing only one year at Pratt Munson. The transition to the Brooklyn campus is automatic and seamless; no application is required to relocate. Approximately 95 percent of students choose to relocate to Brooklyn. When you relocate, you will start as a junior in your program as long as you remain in the major in which you were enrolled in at Pratt Munson. You will complete your degree in two years as long as you meet all requirements for your degree. Upon graduation, your bachelor’s degree will be awarded by Pratt Institute.
