A third party is an entity which guarantees payment of tuition and/or fees on behalf of a student with whom it has a relationship. Examples of a third party are:
An authorization from the third party must be received in Accounts Receivable by the tuition payment deadline if the student's registration is not to be cancelled. Use of the Metropolitan State University Authorization for Payment form is preferred, but the authorization may be in the form of a purchase order or the third party's own form. The following information must be provided on the authorization:
An authorization cannot be conditional on a student's performance in or completion of the course(s). The authorization must be signed by an authorized individual. If private information is needed by the third party, the student must provide us with a written release. Should the relationship between the student and third party cease, the student is ultimately responsible for all charges.
Registration Cancellation for Nonpayment
A third party authorization must be received in Accounts Receivable by the tuition payment deadline if the student's registration is not to be cancelled. If the third party paperwork cannot be submitted before the tuition payment deadline, the student should pay the outstanding balance or enroll in the NELNET/FACTS tuition payment plan until the third party paperwork is received and processed. Any payments made by the student will be refunded once the third party authorization is in place.
Instructions to the Student:
You are required to sign the THIRD PARTY BILLING statement which provides for the event that your relationship with the third party ceases before the charges are paid.
