Third-Party Billing


Students should not add third-party sponsors' addresses or information into OPUS in place of student demographics. This is unnecessary for processing and may create confusion.

If a third party (i.e., corporation or outside entity) will be paying all or part of your tuition and fees, and the third party requires a bill or invoice to be mailed directly from the Student Accounts and Billing Office, a written authorization on company letterhead must be received from the third-party sponsor 21 days prior to registration for each term. Students are reminded not to send their student bills to their sponsor. Most state prepaid tuition programs send a roster of eligible students to the university, and this will suffice as authorization. We recommend students contact our office to ensure their name appears on the program roster.

Depending on the third-party sponsor, students will be given temporary credit on their account in the amount of the agreement. The student retains responsibility for on-time payment of their account. If payment is not received in a timely fashion, the credit will be removed, and the student will be required to pay the remaining balance, which may include finance charges.
