Third Party Payments

Please review third party billing for requirements on third party authorizations. Once a valid authorization is received, accounts receivable will send an invoice to Third Parties after the drop/add period. Payment is due upon receipt of the invoice and is not contingent upon the student successfully completing coursework.

All authorized and non-authorized charges not paid for by the Third Party will be the responsibility of the student and due by the semester due dates. Outstanding charges may result in a holds on the student account, which may prevent the student class registration or transcripts. Service charges of 1.5% monthly (18% annually) may be added to the student account. Please call (269)387-4251 with questions about Third Party payments.
