Graduate Student Support Plan FAQ

My student account was charged tuition and fees even though I'm covered by the Graduate Student Support Plan (GSSP). Why?
Tuition and fees are charged to student accounts and then the Graduate School posts payment for tuition based on GSSP eligibility.

What is the online Notice of Sponsorship form?
The Notice of Sponsorship form is used to report financial support from third party sponsors (ex. GSSP). You should fill out the form shortly after you register for classes but before the late registration deadline for every semester to ensure your class registration is not canceled while the Cashier's Office is waiting for payment from a third party sponsor.

I filled out the online Notice of Sponsorship form, but payment hasn't posted to my account. Why?
The Notice of Sponsorship form does not apply payment to your student account. The Cashier's Office will credit your account for tuition and/or fees upon receipt of funds or written authorization from your sponsor.

When will the Graduate School process tuition payments for students covered by the GSSP?
The Graduate School processes tuition payments after census day every semester.

When is census day?
Census day falls some time after the start of every semester. The actual date varies. For the fall 2010 semester, census day is August 31.

What do I do about my tuition if I'm not covered by the GSSP?
If your professor/advisor has agreed to pay your tuition, please print a detailed student account statement. Have your professor/advisor note the following on the statement:
  1. Amount to be paid
  2. Account from which to pay
  3. Sign and date the statement
  4. Then, turn in the statement to the Chemistry Business Office.

I turned in a detailed statement with all the required information in to the Business Office, but payment hasn't posted to my student account. How long does it take?
Only the Cashier's Office has access to post payments to student accounts. The Business Office submits a payment request to the Cashier's Office after receiving a detailed statement with all of the required information. Then, the Cashier's Office posts payment to student accounts. The amount of time it takes the Cashier's Office to post payments varies widely. It may take only a few days. It may also take a month. This depends entirely on the Cashier's Office.
