    • an eligible Third Party Sponsor Organization will pay a portion of current session tuition fees that exceeds the minimum required payment (Fall term tuition fee total for Fall-Winter session or 50% of Summer tuition fee total for Summer session)
    • you submit for a tuition fee deferral request for each registration session to the Student Accounts Office prior to your division’s Fall-Winter session Pay or Defer to Register deadline or Summer session Pay or Defer to Register deadline.
