Third Party Billing


Sponsored students are those who are enrolled at UC San Diego, and require direct billing to an outside agency (public or private sector sponsor including: military agency, educational institution, and international embassy) for tuition and mandatory fees. 

Student Financial Solutions prepares and sends bills for tuition and mandatory fees, maintains agency and undergraduate student third-party accounts, and handles all correspondence regarding third-party agreements. 

Qualifying Third Party Agreements do not:

  • Include payments made directly to a student, or reimbursements to a student.
  • Place restrictions requiring course completion, grades, or transcripts prior to submitting payment.
