Examples include: domestic or foreign companies, corporations, foreign embassies, state prepaid tuition programs, and state/federal government agencies (including the military and VA). A reimbursement is not considered a form of third party billing. A family member or friend is not considered a third party payer for this purpose. Students must obtain an authorization letter (also known as a contract or sponsor agreement) from their third party payer and submit to the Bursar’s Office.
