Information for Students and Sponsors
The Bursar's Office Third-Party Billing Team administers tuition/fee arrangements between Third-Party Billing Sponsors and the university. A third-party entity is defined as an individual, private, government or state agency, or other outside entities who will assist in paying for any portion of your tuition and/or fees AND they are requesting a bill directly from the University. Examples include military tuition assistance, State Vocational Rehabilitation, workforce centers, etc. Third-Party Billing Sponsor Payments are subject to the same Federal Reporting requirements as other financial aid.
Since the Third-Party Billing Team helps other university departments with the administration of their students' educational benefits, these students will need to contact their respective university department to begin the Third-Party Billing Sponsorship Process:
External government entities or organizations that do not require an official invoice from the Bursar's Office may be administered by the Financial Aid & Scholarship Offices (FASO). If you are unsure if your payment is a scholarship or a sponsorship, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Third-Party Billing Team will make reasonable efforts to accommodate specific billing requirements of sponsors. Students are expected to provide any documentation, corroborations or notifications required by their sponsors
that are outside the duties and responsibilities of the Third-Party Billing Team.
The team reserves the right to deny any billing authorization(s) that does not adhere to guidelines listed under "What Information is Needed to Set-Up or Maintain a Tuition/Fee Third-Party Billing Arrangement?" in the Frequently Asked Questions section of this webpage.
