Sponsorship and Third-Party Billing

A student’s tuition and fees can be billed directly to a sponsor such as an Indigenous community, employer, or government agency, permitting that sponsor and student to enter into a ‘third-party contract’ with Humber. Both the sponsor and student are responsible for completing the necessary steps to confirm the contract by fee due dates and ensure the student's account is not affected.

Required Documents

Note: 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.

Important Dates

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.

Billing Process

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 an invoice by email. 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. Sponsors will receive invoices via email digitally as PDFs and must indicate email address on the sponsorship letter.

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

Payment Terms

Payment is expected on receipt of the invoice. Action will be taken by the Accounts Receivable 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 Accounts Receivable to notify them that their account is past due.
  • Beginning of the second month of school: Internal collections calls begin.
  • The debt will be transferred to an external collections agency that can negatively affect students’ credit history.

Student Responsibilities

  • Ensure the sponsorship letter and supporting documentation are emailed to bursar@humber.ca within the prescribed deadlines.
  • Pay charges not covered by the sponsorship contract in full by the tuition fee due dates.
  • Submit any academic updates/transcripts to the sponsor as required; Humber 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.
  • Pay the balance owing if Accounts Receivable is not able to collect payment from the sponsor.

Sponsor Responsibilities

  • Ensure invoices are paid on time.
  • Do not accept and pay invoices sent directly by a student. Only invoices addressed to the sponsor from the College are official invoices to be paid. If there is a discrepancy, please contact bursar@humber.ca.
  • Reply to emails, letters or phone calls received from Fees or Accounts Receivable in a timely manner.
  • Inform bursar@humber.ca promptly when there are changes made to the sponsorship (e.g. who is sponsored, for what periods, what charges are covered).
  • Contact bursar@humber.ca when sponsor contact information changes.
  • Send a list detailing the IDs, amounts and terms that are being paid when making payments to accounts.receivable@humber.ca and bursar@humber.ca. If paying an invoice in full, simply indicate the invoice number.
  • Make payments by cheque or EFT in Canadian Dollars (CAD).

Humber Student Accounts Responsibilities

  • Send invoices on a regular basis.
  • Update sponsor information.
  • Communicate regularly with students when there are issues with their sponsor.
  • Terminate management of a sponsorship agreement should the sponsor be uncommunicative or fail to respond to invoices.
