When an approved company or organization (sponsor) will be responsible for paying all or part of a student's tuition and fees, it is called a Third Party Billing Contract. JSU requires a Billing Authorization from the sponsor to establish a Third Party Billing Contract.
The sponsor and/or student is responsible for submitting a billing authorization or voucher on the sponsor's letterhead to the Office of Student Accounts each semester 2 weeks prior to the published due date. Authorization must be written in English and contain no restrictions or contingencies (i.e., GPA, grade, dropping a class or withdrawal from one or more classes) or the transaction does NOT qualify as Third Party Billing. Each authorization will be valid for one semester unless otherwise specified and agreed upon by both parties.
Upon receipt of a valid billing authorization, the Office of Student Accounts will apply a conditional credit to the student account while we await payment from the third party sponsor.
Each sponsor will receive an invoice requesting payment for the student(s) after the final drop/add period for the semester or at the end of term as agreed upon by both parties.
Instructions for Students:
Important Note: Students whose sponsor fails to pay the authorized charges will have a financial hold placed on their account (preventing registration for future terms and release of official transcripts or diploma) until the balance is paid in full. Students are encouraged to remain in contact with their sponsor until the terms of the billing authorization have been met.
Instructions for Sponsors:
After you are approved as a sponsor, please remember to submit your authorization listing no later than 2 weeks prior to the published due date in order to confirm the students schedule, housing and residential dining program (if applicable). The authorization MUST include the following:
