Sponsors (Third Party Billing)

Also referred to as Third Party, a sponsor is an outside organization or entity that has agreed to pay all or part of a student’s tuition and fees. Third Parties who wish to cover some or all of the charges on a student's account are invoiced by the University for those charges on the student's behalf. Click below to learn about our new online invoicing platform.

Third Party Sponsor Billing Process

Once a third party sponsor informs the University of its intent to pay, a conditional credit is placed on the student account in the amount of the charges authorized by the third party sponsor.

This conditional credit does not indicate that the third party sponsor has made payment and does not release the student from financial responsibility for those charges.

If the third party sponsor fails to remit payment as agreed, the conditional credit is removed from the student account and the student will be responsible for remitting payment.

The Third Party Sponsor Billing is not a tuition reimbursement. Tuition reimbursement is an agreement between the student and a third party sponsor (usually an employer) in which the third party sponsor reimburses the student after the student has remitted payment for tuition and fees.

The Third Party Sponsor Billing process is outlined below. If you have additional questions after reading this information, please contact Student Business Services at ssb@tamu.edu.

Deadlines and Invoicing Dates

Texas A&M University requires a letter from the third-party sponsor acknowledging intent to pay and provide the information necessary for invoicing. Third-party sponsors can send a letter or email that indicates the following:

• UIN(s) for student(s) - please include the Texas A&M University UIN for each student
• Types of Charges- please list all charges you are willing to pay
• Term(s) - the term(s) you wish to cover
• Type of funding (domestic, international, government, etc.)
• Point of contact and contact information
• Must be on official letterhead

Documents must be submitted at least one week prior to the due date of the semester to avoid late fees and prevent classes from being dropped.

• Third Party Sponsors will be invoiced after the 20th class day.
• Sponsors will receive the invoices by email via the Texas A&M INVOICING platform (powered by Flywire)
• Payments are due 30 days from the invoice date.
