|International Sponsored Student Billing|
The International Office’s Finance and Administration provides third-party billing services for those companies and governments which wish to financially sponsor a student or students. For a $400 fee per student, the office can provide specialized services for the sponsor, including customized invoices, timely billing, and dedicated financial and student advisors. For more details about the services provided to the sponsor and student, please visit our Sponsored Student website.
To initiate third-party billing, the student must first speak with Ms. Liz Smith, the sponsored student advisor. She will provide one-on-one advising for the student. Then, to set up the financial parameters of the sponsorship, the student must speak with Ms. Ruth Sogas-Paramio in the Finance and Administration Office. Here, the student will need to provide a letter outlining the terms of sponsorship (i.e. length of sponsorship, financial coverage, insurance coverage, etc.). Invoices are not sent out until after the 12th class day, which is the final deadline for any schedule changes. This is to ensure accurate information on the invoice.
In the event that a sponsor does not pay for all or part of the tuition and associated fees, the student will be responsible for payment of all unpaid tuition and fees in accordance with University policy. Also, all sponsored students need to confirm their enrollment in order to complete registration each semester. This confirmation is done via UT Direct. Failure to confirm enrollment will result in the cancellation of the student’s registration.
If there are any questions, please contact Ruth Sogas-Paramio by telephone at (512) 471-2447 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
