Third Party Sponsorship Plan

Organizations responsible for employee or client tuition payments may pay tuition and fees using a third party authorization contract or with a company check made payable to CCAC.

Blank third party authorization contracts are available when students register. They also may be obtained by calling the Student Accounts office on the appropriate campus, or download the Third Party Contract Form.

The following third party payment conditions apply:

  • Students must be an employee or client of the financially responsible company or agency. 
  • The contract is between the college and the company or agency. Any agreements between students and the company or agency have no bearing on this contract. 
  • All sponsorship forms or company checks must be in the Student Accounts office by tuition due dates. 
  • Students must submit a new sponsor form each semester.
  • If for some reason a student's sponsor fails to pay charges upon receipt of bill, the student will be responsible for all charges. 
  • Qualified sponsored students are eligible for bookstore charge authorizations. Charges are available during the first three weeks of the 16-week term (fall/spring only). Summer charge periods are shorter. To utilize the authorization, go to the bookstore where the course is held, except Online Learning (OL) courses. Online Learning books are processed through the Allegheny Campus only.

The college will only bill for those charges not covered by other funding sources. If other funding sources become available after the third party has been billed, their bill will be adjusted. If other funding sources become available after the third party has paid, the third party will be refunded.


NOTE FOR VETERAN/MILITARY STUDENTS

Veterans and dependents using either Post 9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33) or Vocational Rehabilitation (Chapter 31) educational benefits are entitled to a waiver of paying any tuition or fees upfront that will be paid by Department of Veterans Affairs.  In cases when students are not 100 percent covered, any balance must be paid (or payment plan enrollment completed) by the semester tuition payment deadline to avoid late fees. 

  • To qualify for the waiver, students using Post 9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33) must present the following documents before the payment deadline:
    • Certificate of Eligibility Letter or Statement of Benefits (obtained through VA e-Benefits website)
    • Completion of the CCAC Veterans Enrollment Certification Request Form
  • To qualify for the waiver, students using Vocational Rehabilitation (Chapter 31) must present the following documents before the payment deadline:
    • VA Form 28-1905: Authorization and Certification of Entrance or Reentrance into Rehabilitation and Certification of Status (Obtained through VA Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor)
    • Completion of the CCAC Veterans Enrollment Certification Request Form

All students using Post 9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33) or Vocational Rehabilitation (Chapter 31) educational benefits are responsible for any portion of tuition or fees not covered or paid by the Department of Veterans Affairs.  Payment of any uncovered portion of tuition and fees must be in accordance with regular college payment procedures.
