Third Party

Due to the volume of students enrolled at UNM who are sponsored by a Third Party, it is necessary to establish standard procedures that must be followed by all students and agencies.

Third Party Sponsored Students

  1. Any past due balance must be paid before registering for any future semester.
  2. Students first registering on or after the first day of the semester may be assessed a non-refundable $30 Late Registration Fee and will be responsible for paying this fee.
  3. Authorizations must be received by the Bursar’s Office prior to the last day to drop/add for a full term. Deadline dates are available on the website of the Office of the Registrar under the menu item Semester Deadline Dates.
  4. Students whose agency has not authorized full payment of all tuition and fees are responsible for paying the remaining charges by the billing due date. The due date is shown on the first bill sent after registering. Students will receive email notifications when their monthly bill is ready to view online. It is very important the bill be reviewed every month.
  5. Students who have not paid in full or have not submitted a valid authorization will be subject to registration and transcript holds. Payment plans may be set up by going to the Bursar Account Suite.
  6. If required, students are responsible for providing their Third Party sponsor with the required academic information, such as class schedules and grades.
Student Bursar Account

Upon receipt of a valid authorization, the Third Party Coordinator will apply a provisional payment on your student bursar account. Application of the Third Party provisional payment does not imply that the Bursar’s Office has received payment on your behalf and will be reversed if payment from the agency is not received within 30 days from the invoice date, resulting in all student account charges due being the full responsibility of the student.

Third Party Agencies

Please observe the following:
  1. In order to allow adequate processing time and better serve our students, issued financial guarantees/authorizations must be received by the Bursar’s Office prior to the last day to drop/add for a full term. Deadline dates are available on the website of the Office of the Registrar under the menu item Semester Deadline Dates.
  2. The Third Party Coordinator must have a valid authorization on file for each term. The authorization letter must be on the agencies letterhead and include a signature of an official authorized to commit payment on behalf of the agency. The authorization must be emailed to the Third Party Coordinator and must specify the following:
    • Contact and billing information for the sponsoring agency
    • Student name and UNM ID number
    • Maximum for each category of education cost that will be paid (i.e., tuition, mandatory fees, course fees, housing, other fees, etc…)
    • Any restrictions with regard to financial aid

Tuition Assistance (TA) DECIDE

TA DECIDE is an online information and comparison tool tailored to the unique educational needs of service members. Launched in April 2015 by the U.S. Dept. of Defense, it is designed to support decision-making when it comes to selecting a school, choosing the right program, and making decisions that are aligned with unique personal goals. A list of approved programs that have differential, or programmatic, tuiton and their combined tuition rate (base + differential) is here. A complete list of mandatory student and all other fees charged to all students attending UNM can be found here.
