A Sponsor will typically cover tuition and approved mandatory fees set forth by the University (refer to Bursar’s website for the Fee Matrix). In addition, a Sponsor may opt-out to pay a specific charge such as tuition and fees for online/hybrid/remote courses, concurrent courses at another institution, cross-enrollment, and/or health insurance. Charges not covered by the student’s sponsorship will remain the student’s financial responsibility.
Sponsorship does not mean the Sponsor will cover all tuition and fee charges reflected on a student’s account. Below is a list of charges that are not considered part of the University’s mandatory fees and must be paid by the Student:
The charges (above) will not be invoiced to a Sponsor unless specific language within the financial guarantee letter (FGL) clearly states that the Sponsor will cover the charge.
It is important to view your UCDAccess account periodically. To view your account balance and statements, log into your UCDAccess student account.
When a student has been classified as a Sponsored Student, their account charges will be placed on a third-party contract. A conditional credit will be applied to the student’s account for the amount that their Sponsor covers.
IMPORTANT: Conditional credit amounts applied to a student’s account do not represent an actual payment from the sponsor. Conditional credit amounts are the items your sponsor will be invoiced. Conditional credit amounts are also subject to change at any time. If the sponsor does not pay the invoiced amount in full for a student's given term, any unpaid charges will be reinstated to the student's account after two (2) terms.
If a balance is due on your account, a monthly email and E-bill from the Bursar’s Office is sent to your UCD email address. Do not ignore these emails as they could mean:
Please review the University of Colorado Denver's Third-Party Billing page to be aware of the Third-Party Billing process. Please also review the Billing Basics to be aware of general billing processes and procedures. If you have any balance on your student account, it is your responsibility to pay the balance.
