Sponsored Student Payments

The billing is processed on a per-term basis. A letter or contract must be presented to the University outlining the sponsor’s guarantee to pay. This authorization must not be contingent upon the student receiving a specific grade or upon a financial need status.

It is the policy of the University to protect our student’s right to confidentiality under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Sponsors must obtain information regarding grades, transcripts, course listings or other specific information directly from the student unless there is a student authorization to release grades and other information on file.

Sponsored Students

Sponsored students are students that require Wright State University to bill an outside sponsor for their tuition and fees while they attend the University. Fees can include technology fees, course fees, room/meal plan charges, student legal services fee, and/or health insurance.  A letter of authorization is required from the sponsoring agency expressly authorizing Wright State University to bill the sponsor directly for the student's expenses. A third party credit is applied to the student account each term for the covered expenses, which is conditional upon the sponsor's payment.

Sponsored Student's Responsibilities

  • It is the student’s responsibility to ensure the University is provided with a valid authorization letter (contract) from their sponsor before the appropriate due date to avoid cancellation of registration and/or late fees.
  • A sponsored student must monitor their student account status regularly. If the sponsor does not cover the total charges, it is the student’s responsibility to pay the balance owed.
  • Non-payment by the sponsor immediately becomes the responsibility of the student.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to know the duration of the sponsorship as listed in the authorization letter. The University will not notify a student when the sponsorship has expired.
  • Additional information required by the sponsor, including grades, transcripts, course(s) and other miscellaneous information, must be supplied by the student.
  • If questions arise concerning conditions of the sponsorship the student should contact the sponsor.
  • Students may submit agency/third party authorization forms through the refund period of the following term, however; your fees must be paid from other resources by the fee payment deadline.

Sponsor's Responsibilities

Provide a letter or contract to Wright State University prior to the term fee payment deadline with the following information:

  • Student’s name and University ID number
  • Description of covered charges, which may include tuition, technology fee, course fees, room/meal plan charges, student legal services fee, and/or health insurance fees
  • Any dollar limitations on the covered charges
