Important Third-Party Sponsor Information
A third-party organization may sponsor a student’s enrollment by committing to paying a student’s tuition and fees.
A TPSA must be submitted for each academic year. Adhering to these dates will insure that your sponsored student will not be dropped for non-payment. MPTC does not accept TPSAs after payment has been made. Students will have to request reimbursement directly from sponsors.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) prohibits MPTC from releasing personally identifiable information regarding enrollment without express written consent from the student. The MPTC Student Authorization for Release of Education Records Information form allows MPTC to provide limited information to the sponsoring agency and MUST be completed by the student before MPTC will bill the student’s sponsoring agency.
The TPSA must be signed by an authorized individual at the agency. We ask that the agency/sponsor pay the total amount on the invoice upon receipt in order to avoid putting the student’s registration at risk. If payment is not received from the sponsor by the due date of the invoice, MPTC will charge the outstanding tuition and fees to the student’s account and payment will be due immediately.
Q: What is a Third-Party Sponsorship Application (TPSA)?
A: A Third-Party Sponsorship Application is an agreement between Moraine Park and an organization that makes a commitment to pay a designated amount towards your educational expenses. Third parties require a billing invoice to be forwarded to them for payment for every semester of attendance. TPSAs are subject to the same federal reporting requirements as other financial aid.
Q: What do I need to know about TPSAs?
A: What are your third party requirements? What is the dollar amount of the contract? You are responsible for paying your portion of the remaining billing invoice by the due date or late charges will appear on the account. Moraine Park can bill the third party for educational expenses on your behalf. These expenses can consist of tuition and fees.
Q: How does a TPSA affect my account?
A: The third party provides a signed TPSA authorization at the beginning of the semester. After you have registered, your account is credited conditionally for the expected amount. At the end of the drop/add period, Moraine Park will submit a billing invoice to the third party on your behalf.
Q: Can I get a refund if my account shows a credit balance?
A: The account is reviewed to determine whether the credit balance results from actual payments or conditional credits. The College does not refund conditional credits.
Q: My bill does not list my sponsorship. What do I do?
A: Log into myMPTC Student and click My Finances>MaxPay. If you do not see your third party commitment, it means Moraine Park has not received a TPSA, or you may not have yet met the requirements.
Q: Do you send grades/transcripts to third parties?
A: The relationship between the third parties and Moraine Park involves billing and payment matters only. You are responsible for providing all other required information.
