3rd Party Billing

Welcome to the University of Maine 3rd Party billing information page. Here you will find information about the billing process. Once a purchase order has been submitted by the 3rd Party and reviewed, the charges will be transferred to a 3rd Party account and appear as paid on the student account. They will then be the 3rd Party’s responsibility to pay. Invoices will be sent after the add/drop period is over in order to ensure accurate billing. Information on the add/drop period can be found on the Student Records website.
