Third Party Billing

Third-party billing is a billing method by which an entity (company, corporation, or other government agency) can establish special billing arrangements to cover tuition and mandatory fees for students that it sponsors. This entity receives and makes payment against special bills mailed directly to a third-party office, and does not remit payment directly to a student's university-generated bill.  The sponsor must submit a letter of authorization to the Business Office and the student must complete the TAMUT third party agreement contract.

Emergency Tuition and Fee Loans

Emergency Tuition and Fee Loans pay the full amount of the first installment of tuition and fees on a student’s payment plan. Students do not receive a check with this loan; a credit is made to offset tuition/fee charges. A debit is then made in order for the student to pay back the amount of the emergency loan.  Applications for emergency loans must be submitted before the first day of classes.
