Tuition Discounts / Third Party Billing

Tuition Discounts

The university offers a variety of tuition discounts applied through the Business Office. These discounts are applicable to tuition only and cannot be applied to other fees assessed to your student account. It is the student's responsibility to notify the Business Office if a discount has not been applied. Discounts will not be applied to a prior academic year once the new academic year has begun. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for specific dates.

Who is Eligible?

Part-time or full-time undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for tuition discounts. Students enrolled in professional schools or doctoral level programs are not eligible to receive these discounts. Discounts are not applicable to students for whom 100% tuition is paid by a third party. Discounts may vary between university programs such as Main Campus and SPS.

Submitting Documentation

Documentation for tuition discounts should be submitted no later than 10 days after the 1st day of class. Please note, not all tuition discounts are processed by the Business Office.

Third Party Billing

Students may have a sponsor or outside organization who has agreed to pay a portion or all the student’s tuition and fees. The university refers to these entities as Third Parties and will invoice based on the contract provided to the university.

Invoice Process and Dates

The student or Third Party must provide the university with some form of documentation stating their intent to pay the student’s tuition and fees. The university will submit an invoice based on the documentation after the 100% drop date for the respective semester and/or term. This is done to reduce the number of overpayments due to dropped courses. Documentation should be submitted to the university no later than 10 days after the 1st day of class. Payment should be received by the university within 60 days after submitting an invoice. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for dates.

Contract Billing

Depending on the third party agreement, the university may place a conditional contract on your student account that serves as a credit while we wait for payment. This contract is not a payment and does not release the student from their financial responsibility. The contract will be removed if a third party does not remit payment to the university based on the agreement provided.

Military Tuition Assistance

Students planning to utilize Military Tuition Assistance should visit their respective military portals to submit the request.
