Guide for Sponsored Students

Introduction

Sponsored students are those students that are registered and require Student Financial Services to bill an outside sponsor for tuition and fees while they attend the University of Michigan (U-M).

Student Financial Services will process deferred third-party billing of tuition and fees to businesses, governments, agencies and organizations desiring to sponsor a student at the U-M.

The billing is processed on a per term basis. A letter of authorization is required from the sponsoring agency expressly authorizing the U-M to bill the sponsor directly for the sponsored student's covered expenses. A third party credit is then applied to the sponsored student's account for each term, which is conditional upon the sponsor's payment.
