3rd Party/Sponsor Billing

The student receives an invoice. The student will use the Anticipated Resources area of Student Self-Service on MaineStreet (Path: Student Self-Service /Student Center /Self Service / Campus Finances /Anticipated Resources) to notify the University of any third party sponsorship.

It is the student’s responsibility to obtain authorization from the third party sponsor (purchase order/authorization form) which indicates how much the third party sponsor will be paying on the bill.

The student mails the authorization form, copy of the statement and payment (if any due) to the University by the payment due date. If these items are received by the payment due date shown on the statement, no late fee will be assessed.

For questions on third party sponsorship billing, please call the Bursar’s Office @ (207) 581-1530.
