Third Party Information/Tuition Assistance/Letter of Credit

What Is Considered A Third Party?
An outside agency/business that authorizes BSC to invoice them for all or a portion of a student's tuition, fees, room, board, and books. (Examples of a third party are: Tuition Assistance from the Military, Workforce Safety and Insurance (WSI), Workforce Investment Act (WIA), Vocational Rehabilitation, BIA, and private employers.)

What Guidelines are Acceptable When Submitting an Authorization/Voucher/Letter of Credit?
A third party authorization/voucher/letter of credit must be received for each semester and contain the following information:
  • Student's Full Name
  • Student's Birthdate
  • What is being covered (ex. tuition/fees, tuition only, books, specific classes, all costs for the semester)
    Note: If a third party is covering an "application fee" an authorization must be received prior to the student application and receipt of student payment.
  • Previously paid application fees are not refunded upon receipt of a third party authorization.
  • Any reimbursement of previously paid application fees are between the student and third party.
  • Dollar Amount (ex. Specific dollar amount, or state full cost of specific class, required books, etc.)
  • All third party authorizations/vouchers/letter of credits must be on an official form or submitted on company letterhead, signed and approved by the appropriate officials.
  • New authorizations/letters of credit must be received for each term - Fall, Spring, and Summer.
  • Authorizations/vouchers/letters of credit must be received on or before the class starts.

Allow 24 business hours processing time before the third party payment is showing on the student account and/or the information is at the BSC Bookstore for book charging.

Student Requirements Until Acceptable Voucher/Authorization/Letter of Credit Is Received
Students are not able to charge books until the appropriate paperwork is received in the BSC Student Finance Office.

Students are responsible for any balance due on their student account until the proper paperwork is received in the BSC Student Finance Office.  

Students receiving bills but are covered by a third party should check their student account to see if the balance due was charged to a third party after the printing of the bill.  If the student is still showing a balance the student is responsible for following up with the BSC Student Finance Office to verify the information has been received by the third party.
