Third party billing
When an organization, not owned by you or a family member, makes a commitment to pay your educational expenses, they are considered a third party sponsor by the University of Minnesota. When payment is due on your student account, the sponsor is billed by the University. This payment process is termed "third party billing."
Sponsor's payments are subject to the same federal reporting requirements as other financial aid. Some sponsorships don't require a billing invoice and are administered by the University through One Stop Student Services.
Whether you are a student or a sponsor, you will find answers in the frequently asked questions (FAQ ) about how the third party billing processes these payments at the links on the left. In addition, you can view current tuition and fee information.
