I Am a Sponsored Student and I Am Also Eligible for a Graduate Student Assistant (GSA) Tuition Waiver. What Should I Do?
The sponsor will be billed for tuition and miscellaneous fees (Registration Fee, School & College Government Fee, Student Legal Services Fee, Michigan Student Assembly Fee,course fees), as authorized in the letter of authorization, even if the student is appointed as a GSA and receives a tuition waiver. If the student wishes to accept the GSA tuition waiver, the student must contact Student Financial Services and fill out a third party waiver form in order to arrange for the sponsor not to be billed. The GSA waiver pays tuition only and does not include payment of the miscellaneous fees. If the student wishes to accept the GSA tuition waiver, the student will be responsible for payment of the miscellaneous fees. If billing of authorized charges is discontinued at the request of the student for any reason, a NEW letter of authorization must be received from the sponsor to resume the billing of the student's charges.
