Sponsored students are students whose education at the University of North Texas is funded directly by a third party, called a sponsor. Sponsors can be employers, educational institutions, government agencies, foundations, grants or other institutional sources. Examples of third-party sponsors include the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan (formerly Texas Tomorrow Fund) and the Texas Tuition Promise Fund.

The sponsored student is responsible for obtaining authorization for UNT Student Accounting to bill the sponsor directly for the student's expenses each semester.

Important Notice for Students with Third Party/Sponsored Agreements

Sponsored students should submit the necessary paperwork to Student Accounting in a timely manner to have a sponsor payment posted to their account. To ensure the sponsor payment is posted and any additional amount due is paid by the applicable payment deadline, students should review their account online at myUNT. Student Accounting will release any student financial information necessary to obtain payment from a sponsor. This information can include any information on the student account summary, including financial aid. Additionally, some sponsors may require a student's class schedule and withdrawal information if applicable. Please direct additional questions to sponsoredbilling@unt.edu. Please contact Student Accounting at 940-565-3225 for information about current sponsors under agreements.

Students' Guide to Sponsored Billing

Our goal is to make fee payment for sponsored students as hassle-free as possible. Following these simple steps helps us ensure your student account is properly credited. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of your schedule.

  • Please submit your sponsor documents to Student Accounting in a timely manner. Documents may be submitted by fax, email, mail, or in person, depending on the individual sponsors requirements. Submitted documents must be complete and contain all applicable signatures. To verify the sponsor payment has been applied and any remaining balance is paid by the applicable payment deadline, Please review your account through myUNT.

NOTE: Sponsor funds will not be applied to your account if you have an outstanding balance.

  • Sponsor payments are limited by individual sponsors and we cannot exceed those limits. Any balance above a sponsor's limit is the student's responsibility and must be paid by the applicable payment deadline.
  • If you have submitted your sponsor documents prior to registration the sponsor payment should be reflected on your student account once you register. If you are registering during regular registration and your sponsor payment is not reflected on your account, please contact the Sponsored Billing area of Student Accounting that day to avoid cancellation of your class schedule.
  • You are responsible for payment arrangements and must contact our office each semester. If we have not received your paperwork by the end of regular registration, you must make payment and be reimbursed after your paperwork has been received.
  • If you are withdrawing from the University, please contact us to cancel your sponsor's payment. You are responsible for any non-refundable fees on your account; the sponsor will not pay these fees.
