Third-Party Billing

Third-Party Billing is a method of billing in which an entity (such as a company, corporation, or other government agency) has established special billing arrangements to cover tuition and mandatory fees for students that it sponsors. This entity receives and makes payments 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 Office of the Bursar. The letter from the sponsor should include:

  1. Student's name
  2. Student's Rensselaer ID number
  3. Semester or duration of program
  4. Charges for which the student is responsible
  5. Address to send the bill
  6. Contact person's name, email and telephone number

Please address inquiries and payments as follows:

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Bursar's Office/Academy Hall
110 8th Street
Troy, NY 12180-3590
