Students Receiving Financial Aid
If you have an employer or other agency assisting you with your tuition and fee charges and they require an invoice to send payment, you will need to provide Montgomery College with documentation from your sponsor. The documentation must include the following information:
- Your name and student identification number.
- The name and billing address of the organization sponsoring you.
- A contact name and phone number from the organization.
- A specific statement that authorizes Montgomery College to bill the organization.
- The total dollar amount to be billed to the organization.
- Billing requirements from the organization.
- Official signature (electronic signatures accepted) from organization.
Documentation that does not include all of this information will be returned to you and your organization will not be billed.
Fax documentation to Ms. Dawn Drew in the Accounts Receivable Office at 301-545-0536 or submit documentation to any Campus Cashier’s Office.
- If your sponsor authorization is based on course completion or attainment of a certain grade before payment is made, you need to pay for your classes and wait to be reimbursed by your employer.
- Montgomery College does not defer tuition while you wait to be paid by your employer.
- If your sponsor is not paying 100% of your tuition charges you will be required to pay your portion of the charges to the Cashier at the time your form is submitted. Also, it is your responsibility to supply your sponsor with grades or certificates of completion. This is not done by the Accounts Receivable Office, even if the documentation from your sponsor authorizes the release of such items.
- If your sponsor has indicated that they will pay for book charges, keep a copy of the documentation and submit it to the Campus Bookstore when you purchase your books.
- Once your documentation has been received, an indicator will be placed on your account that will hold your classes until the charges are billed. If you decide not to attend a specific class or classes once you have submitted paperwork, then you must drop the class by the specified refund date in order to not be financially responsible for the charges.
- Sponsors are billed after the fourth week of classes during the fall and spring semester. During the summer sessions, sponsors are billed after the second week of classes. In the case of non-credit (WDCE) classes, sponsors are billed after the refund date for the particular class has expired.
