Third-Party Agencies

Third-party agencies provide a guarantee of payment for a student's tuition and fees. Qualifying third parties may be corporations, vocational rehabilitation offices, and government agencies.

The Bursar's Office manages domestic third parties. Global Initiatives manages international sponsors.
