Outside Payment Policies

Third Party Billing: The Business Office must receive an authorization from your third party payer no later than the tuition due date for the semester. This authorization must contain the student name, CMU ID#, and allowable fees. Authorizations should be sent to:

Once we receive the authorization from your third party payer, we will submit an invoice to them per their instructions. Any amount your third party payer does not pay is your responsibility.

Outside Scholarships will not be calculated into your student balance until CMU receives the payment from your sponsor. If an invoice is required, the Business Office must receive authorization from the organization or company in order to generate an invoice. Outside scholarships will automatically be split evenly between the fall and spring semesters, unless specifically stated or requested otherwise.
