Third Party Billing

Belmont University will bill a Third Party (sponsor i.e. outside agency, corporation or State Prepaid Plan) requiring a separate invoice that agrees to pay directly to Belmont all or part of your tuition and fees.  To take advantage of this service, 1) Students must provide written authorization from the Third Party payer providing details of the Third Party benefit and 2) Complete the one-time student Third-Party contract Application form

Once the sponsor’s authorization is received and student contract is completed, a credit with the description “Third Party Billing” will be applied to the student’s account. An invoice for this amount will be sent to the sponsor after the close of the add/drop period of each semester. The sponsor’s authorization must also state that Belmont University will be paid directly. Tuition reimbursement or 529 Plans are not considered third party billing, since these benefits are generally either grade dependent and/or paid directly to the student.

1) The Third Party Authorization letter must be printed on company letterhead and contain the following:

  • Name of the student
  • Student’s Belmont I.D number (BUID)
  • Beginning and end date of sponsorship 
  • Type of fees covered (tuition, mandatory fees, housing, dining, etc.)
  • Amount to be invoiced
  • Sponsor’s billing address 
  • Signature of authorized official
The authorization letter can be submitted via email at, by mailing the form to c/o Office of Student Financial Services, 1900 Belmont Boulevard, Nashville, TN 37212 or by fax at 615-460-6141.

2) The one-time Student Third Party Contract Application form must be completed before credit is applied to student's account. To complete the form CLICK HERE.

Important Disclaimer: If, for any reason, the sponsor does not pay the invoice, the student will be responsible for all charges due to Belmont University by the due date or immediately upon request.  Future third party credits will not be allowed until current sponsorships are paid in full.
