Third Party Contracts, Exemptions, Waivers, & Misc. Programs
Third Party Contracts/Sponsorships
Third party contracts involve a sponsor being billed for the payment of a student's tuition and fee account according to an agreement between UHD and the outside sponsor, agency or company. These contracts may cover part or all of the tuition and fee charges. Third parties do not include parents or other family members.
Process for Students:
The student must provide Student Accounting with the following information by the deadlines indicated below.
- Letter of Credit/vouchers specifying what is going to be paid
- Contact person for third party
- Billing address, email and phone number
- Billing requirements of third party
Third Party Payment Agreement Form (required for first semester only)
- Note: All students receiving benefits from a prepaid account (ie Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan), must send notification of enrollment and request of use of benefits for
every term of attendance.
Letter of Credits/vouchers can be submitted via fax, email, or in person at the Student Accounting Office S320.
Deadlines for Students:
Student accounting reserves the right not to accept Third Party contracts after the Official Day of Record for the term the contract is being utilized for.

Invoicing the Third Party Contract/Sponsor:
UHD will invoice the third party vendor
one time after the refund period for drop/withdrawals has concluded for the term. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure their account is paid. If the third party fails to submit payment to the university, the student will assume financial responsibility and pursue the matter directly through the third party.
Examples of Third Party Contract/Sponsor:
- Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan (Formerly Texas Tomorrow Fund)
- Texas Workforce Commission
- Foreign Governments and Agencies
Exemptions are a type of financial assistance allowing some Texas residents to attend a public college or university in Texas without paying tuition or, in some cases, tuition and fees.
Proof of Qualification must be submitted prior to the first semester of use to the Student Accounting Office.
