Tuition/Fee Payments for Third Party Sponsored Students
Students sponsored by a third party, must submit the third party authorization to the Office of Business and Finance by the payment deadline for each semester. This constitutes payment and will hold your classes. Any tuition and/or fees not covered by the third party will be the responsibility of the student and must be paid by the payment deadline. Please refer to the Registration Schedule for the payment deadline(s).
If you need to speak to an Accounting Technician concerning your authorization, please visit the Third Party Contact page to determine who to contact.
Refunds for tuition and fees are processed approximately 2-3 weeks after the drop/add period ends. Refunds will be issued back to your credit card if paid by credit card.
All other refunds will be electronically deposited into your personal bank account if you login to WebAdvisor and enter your bank account information or by a paper check that will be mailed.
Please make certain your correct mailing address is on file in the Registrar's Office.
