Third Party Payment

Montclair State University accepts certain letters of credit. Any student, who is eligible and has applied for tuition reimbursement benefits under any of the programs administered by their company for education assistance, may defer payment of tuition and fees (but not room and board fees). All students must present the Student Accounts Office with a signed copy of your individual form on the company letterhead/official document before the payment due date (for payment schedule by semester, please see Payment Deadlines) and pay any remaining balance that the authorization may not cover. Otherwise, a late fee of $125 may be assessed. Failure to make payment can prohibit students from receiving transcript and diplomas, selection of housing, and registering for future semesters. All signatures, course listings, credit hours and dates must be valid according to the term proposed in the contract. The company letter of credit agreement will allow the student to defer payment for the term outlined only.

Submission of all proof of enrollment and/or invoices is the responsibility of the student. Montclair State University will not forward any information to an individual company. The Signed/approved authorization may be faxed to 973-655-4421, emailed to, submitted in person to Student Accounts Office, College Hall Room 218.

To prevent financial and academic liability, it is the student’s responsibility to check their official Montclair State e-mail and WESS account on a regular basis for registration, billing and financial aid information. Students are ultimately responsible for any default in payment by the sponsoring agency. All contracts or letters MUST include the following information in order to be processed:

  • Student’s Name
  • Student’s Campus Wide Identifier (CWID)
  • Specific charges and semester the sponsor will pay
  • Name, signature and contact information of person authorizing the contract
