Third-Party / Sponsor Billing

Information for Students and Sponsors

The Bursar's Office Third Party Billing Team administers tuition/fee arrangements between Third Party Billing Sponsors and the university. A Third Party Billing Sponsor is an external government entity or organization that agrees to pay tuition/fees to the Bursar’s Office on behalf of non-related student(s). Third Party Billing Sponsor Payments are subject to the same Federal Reporting requirements as other financial aid. 

Starting Fall 2019 Semester, Third Party Billing/Sponsored Students will have to submit a Sponsored Student Agreement Form before a conditional credit can be applied to their student accounts.

AmeriCorps, VA Chapter 31/Chapter 33, and CU Denver K-12 Outreach students will not have to submit this form​.​​

Since the Third Party Billing Team helps other university departments with the administration of their students' educational benefits, these students will need to contact their respective university department to begin the Third Party Billing Sponsorship Process:

External government entities or organizations that do not require an official invoice from the Bursar's Office may be administered by the Financial Aid & Scholarship Offices (FASO). If you are unsure if your payment is a scholarship or a sponsorship, please contact us via email at

​The Third Party Billing Team will make reasonable efforts to accommodate specific billing requirements of sponsors, but we expect the student to provide any documentation, corroborations or notifications required by their sponsors that are outside the duties and responsibilities of the Third Party Billing Team. 

​The team reserves the right to deny any billing authorization(s) that does not adhere to guidelines listed under "What Information is Needed to Set-Up or Maintain a Tuition/Fee Third Party Billing Arrangement?" in the Frequently Asked Questions section of this webpage.

Third Party Sponsors cannot use QuikPay or its authorized users function to make payments.
