Bursar: Third Party Payments

Third Party Payment is the process we use to bill an outside organization for your tuition and/or fees. Third Party billing is unique in that the organization requires a bill from us before remitting payment. If you are expecting a third party to pay your tuition and other fees, you need to make special arrangements with us to bill that organization. 

Your Responsibility

As a student receiving funds from a third party, you have the following responsibilities:

Billing Authorization

We must have a billing authorization from your organization on file in order for payment to be made. The authorization letter or voucher must be on your organization's letterhead, including the original signature of an official authorized to obligate payment by the company/ organization. 

Send document, at least two weeks prior to the advertised payment deadline, to the following address: 

Georgia Southern University
Office of the Bursar
ATT: Third Party Billing
11935 Abercorn Street
Savannah, GA 31419
Or you can scan and email to

We require authorization in order to establish a billing contract to bill your organization directly for payment of your student account charges. This billing authorization must: 

Conditional Credit 

Upon receipt of a valid billing authorization, we will apply a conditional credit to your student account, then bill the organization after the add/drop period. Students who do not receive full payment of all tuition, fees, and housing are responsible for paying all remaining charges by the payment deadline. 

If your third party fails to pay the authorized charges within 60 days from when they are billed their conditional credit will be reversed and you will be responsible for the unpaid charges. A financial hold and late fees may be placed on your student account until the balance is paid in full. We encourage you to remain in contact with your organization until the terms of the billing authorization have been met.
