Third Party/Contracts and Billing
If an approved company or organization will be responsible for paying all or part of a studentís tuition and fees, this is called a Third Party Billing arrangement. Georgia Perimeter College requires a Billing Authorization from the company or organization in order to set up a Third Party Contract. Listed below are steps required in order to set up an approved third party billing arrangement:
1. The company is responsible for submitting an authorization or voucher on the companyís letterhead to the Student Accounts office. It must be signed by an official authorized to obligate payment by the organization and should have contact information for this official (name, phone number, and e-mail address). Authorizations must be received before the fee payment deadline each semester. Authorizations may be sent the following ways:
In Person: Brought to any campus Student Accounts Office
Mail: Georgia Perimeter College
Student Accounts Office
3251 Panthersville Road
Decatur, GA 30034
2. The authorization can be valid for one or more students and must include the type of tuition and fees the company will be paying, such as Tuition, Mandatory Fees, and books. The authorization CANNOT contain any contingencies on payment, such as must have a grade, enrolled in specific classes, will pay after Financial Aid is applied, etc.
3. Each authorization will be valid for one semester unless otherwise specified, not to exceed one Academic year (Fall through Summer Semesters). The authorization must have the studentís name and Georgia Perimeter College identification number.
4. Georgia Perimeter College will start sending invoices after the drop/add date is complete. A copy of the authorization will be attached. Payment must be made in full. Failure to make payment in full may result in the student being dropped from classes and the restriction of third-party privileges.
Georgia Perimeter College does not accept pre-paid tuition or 529 plans for third-party contracts with the exception of the Florida Prepaid unrestricted payment program which currently meets college guidelines. Students with pre-paid tuition plans or 529 plans must pay in full and be reimbursed directly from their plan. Pre-paid funds sent directly to the college must have the student ID and cannot exceed the tuition amount for the specified term.
