Students may have their employer request a formal agreement to pay CSUMB directly. This is called a Third Party contract. If your employer would like to pay for your tuition, they will need to complete the steps listed below.
CSUMB does not guarantee acceptance of all third party payment contracts*. The third party contract must be authorized by the CSUMB finance office before your payment due date. Your employer should submit the third party authorization form at least three weeks prior to the term start.
Once a signed agreement from the employer is submitted and accepted, CSUMB will invoice the employer following the add/drop period for the class in question.
Students are still responsible for all unpaid fees that are not covered by the Third Party contract.
- Provide your employer with your CSUMB Student ID (9 digits), not your CSUMB username (4 letters/4 digits)
- Your employer may use the Employer Payment Authorization template for content.
- The official authorization letter is to be submitted on company letterhead and signed.
- This authorization is to be term and year specific and state the maximum amount allowed.
Note: Students receiving employer paid tuition reimbursements after a class ends, are required to pay fees prior to the payment due date. Students may seek financial aid for fee assistance.
*CSUMB currently does not accept third party payments from Verizon
My employer requires a tuition statement for reimbursement of fees
Please submit your request to your Student Coach, Success Advisor or Program Coordinator.
Your request is to include the term/year and course # that you would like the Tuition Statement to reflect. The form will be emailed to you and you may submit this form to your employer.
The form will reflect (Yes or No) if you have successfully completed the course with a grade of B or Better. The form will not list your specific grade.
