How do I notify SUNY Empire State College that we are funding a student?
Student Accounts must receive written authorization from you telling us who and what you are going to pay for. Please include in your documentation (i.e., on letterhead or voucher):
What methods of payment does the college accept?
When can sponsors expect to receive an invoice from the college?
SUNY Empire State College issues invoices after day 28 of the term. This allows students time to add/drop and withdraw from courses, limiting the changes that may impact their final billed amount.
When are payments due?
Payment is expected within 30 days after receipt of your invoice.
Our organization requires students to receive a particular grade before we will pay you. Will you defer payment until our student gets his/her grades?
We will be unable to defer the student's charges as SUNY policy requires a guarantee of payment at the start of the term. In those cases where a sponsor requires a particular outcome before making payment, we require the student to make payment and seek reimbursement from their sponsor at the end of the term.
What is the college's federal ID number to use when preparing employee tax documents?
