Third Party: Billing/Invoicing of Third Party Vendors

If you are paying your university tuition and/or fees through a third-party vendor:

  • Your agency must agree to pay UMUC directly upon receipt of invoice.
  • Invoices are sent to agencies each semester after the schedule adjustment period (about one month after the session start date).
  • Invoices are created in advance upon request of the authorizing official.

Important: UMUC does not invoice agencies for books. Please contact the book provider (MBS Direct) to see if they will accept book vouchers from your agency.

Agencies Are Sent Three Invoices:

  • First invoice: This invoice includes two copies of the invoice; one copy each of the tuition assistance form and Agency Payment form.
  • Late Notice: A late notice is sent 30 days after the original with a dunning letter. Dunning letters inform the agency that the invoice remains unpaid, and the charges are in jeopardy of being reinstated back to the student's account. At this time, we send an email to the student informing them that their agency has not paid the tuition assistance invoice. The agency will have 30 days to submit the payment.
  • Final Late Notice: Final notice is sent 30 days after the late notice with a final notice dunning letter. The final notice dunning letter states that we will reinstate the charges back to the student's account in the event the balance is not paid. The agency is given the reinstatement date, and 30 days to submit the payment.
