Both the sponsor and student must inform Humber of the sponsorship to finalize the contract and ensure the student’s account in not affected.

Sponsorship Process

The sponsor must submit a letter on company letterhead to enter into a third-party sponsorship contract with the College.

Submit the following two documents:

Frequently Asked Questions

Sponsored students’ fees are paid upfront by the sponsor and are not required to wait for final grades.

Tuition Reimbursement is an agreement between the employee and their employer to reimburse the individual upon successful completion of a course(s). If a student is accessing an organization’s tuition reimbursement program, the student must pay the College outstanding fees by the due date and arrange reimbursement with their employer upon successful completion of the course(s) and/or program.

Sponsorship documents will be accepted until the first day of the month preceding the term in which the student is enrolled (i.e. Fall term: August 1st; Winter term: December 1st; Summer term: April 1st) to avoid additional charges to the student’s account.

Documentation received after the dates listed above must be accompanied with full payment. Letters received without payment will not be accepted. Therefore, the student will be responsible for paying the College directly and must seek reimbursement from the sponsor.

Personal companies belonging to the student or a family member are not eligible for a third-party contract. Humber reserves the right to refuse a third-party sponsorship request to current and/or past sponsors for contract violations, including late payments.

A student with a third-party sponsor will have ‘payments’ added to their account outlining the amount paid by their sponsor. Corresponding charges are added by the College to the sponsor’s account, followed by a mailed invoice. Though the student’s account may not appear to have an outstanding balance, the sponsor should refer to their invoice to ensure the College has received and applied payment(s) to the student’s account. Invoices are produced by the College on a monthly basis.

Sponsors will receive the first invoice at the end of the month for the term the student is enrolled (i.e. Fall term: September; Winter term: January; Summer term: May). Sponsors receive an invoice following the last day students are permitted to withdraw for refund to ensure invoices are up-to-date upon delivery. Invoices are mailed through standard post. Sponsors may request invoices be sent digitally as PDFs and must indicate this on the sponsorship letter.

Invoices are in Canadian dollars (CAD). Payments made to the College must be in Canadian dollars (CAD).

Payment is expected on receipt of the invoice. Action will be taken by the Student Accounts office once billed balances have reached certain aging.

  • End of the first month of school: The charges will be reversed back to the student for payment. Affected students will receive an email from Student Accounts to notify them that their account is past due.
  • Beginning of the second month of school: Internal collections calls begin.
  • Beginning of the third month of school: Students with outstanding fees will be de-registered from their courses, and a hold will be applied to the account. Account holds prevent affected students from registering for classes, requesting a transcript(s) or receiving their credential.
  • The debt will be transferred to an external collections agency that can negatively affect students’ credit history.
  • Ensure the sponsorship letter and supporting documentation are emailed to within the prescribed deadlines.
  • Pay charges not covered by the sponsorship contract in full by the billed due dates.
  • Submit any academic updates/transcripts to the sponsor as required; Student Accounts will not process updates on the student’s behalf.
  • Inform Student Accounts immediately if the sponsorship ends but sponsor payments (“Amount Transferred to Sponsor”) are still appearing on the Account Summary by Term.

  • Set up the sponsor to be billed directly by the College. Student invoices should not be sent to the sponsor for payment.

  • Reply to emails, letters or phone calls received from Student Accounts in a timely manner.
  • Inform Student Accounts promptly when there are changes made to the sponsorship (e.g. who is sponsored, for what periods, what charges are covered).
  • Contact Student Accounts when sponsor contact information changes.

  • Update sponsor information.
  • Communicate regularly with students when there are issues with their sponsor.
