Third-Party Contracts

All students receiving any financial support from an external agency, foundation, organization, employer (hospitals) or government MUST complete the Third Party Contract Online Form. The Financial Aid Office is responsible for collecting and tracking funding information for all students. If you are receiving funding from multiple sources, separate forms for each source must be received.

Please note:

  • Third-Party Contracts are in effect only after matriculation and that admitted students must pay the tuition deposit by credit card or check.
  • The third-party contract is not legally binding.
  • The form must not be completed by the student as it will not be processed.

Third-Party and student related information below, all are responsible to review:

Invoice

The Student Accounts Office will invoice the Third-Party for the items they have agreed to pay for both current and future terms. The invoice will be sent as soon as tuition has been assessed and/or after the form has been processed. (depending on timing)

Please note: a Third-Party cannot be billed for fees NOT charged on the student account**. When payment is received from the third-party, the student’s account will be credited with the amount of the third-party’s payment. (** Therefore, if a third-party wishes to pay for living/other expenses, the check for those educational costs must go directly to the student.)

Students will receive an email copy from the Student Accounts Office when their third-party has been invoiced and payment has been received.

Tuition deposit

Tuition deposit is a mandatory deposit that must be paid to the Admissions Office in order to secure the student’s place in the class. This deposit is nonrefundable; and any credit balance that arises after paying this deposit will be refunded to the student by completing the Credit Balance Refund Form. THIS TUITION DEPOSIT CANNOT BE WAIVED.
