Employer/Sponsor Assistance

Employers know that education is the key to on-the-job success. Thousands of companies offer tuition assistance programs to help their employees enroll in classes, or complete a certificate or degree program. We encourage you to explore the options available to you, including eligibility requirements, prior to registering for courses or applying to a certificate or degree program.  

Students in Degree Programs (BIS and BPHM)

Payments are made through Student Financial Services. If your employer is paying for your tuition, arrangements can be made through Student Financial Services Third-Party Billing.

Students Enrolled in SCPS Programs and Courses 

If you are requesting that a business/organization be billed for tuition, a letter or email of authorization or Purchase Order must be emailed to AR-scps3party@virginia.edu no later than seven calendar days before the first day of class. The letter of authorization must be on company letterhead. The letter of authorization, the authorizing email, or the Purchase Order must be from someone (other than the student) with authority to obligate the organization, and include:  student name, class title, and amount being paid for by the employer/sponsor, along with a contact person, billing name, address, phone number, and email. An authorization signature and tax ID number must be included.  

You are responsible for all tuition and fees associated with your class enrollment. You are responsible for payment of your bill by your employer/sponsor and will be billed on your student account for unpaid tuition and/or fees in the event of default by your employer/sponsor or failure to meet the employer/sponsor  criteria.

Checks, e-Checks (ACH, a charge made to a checking account) and Credit Card payments are accepted. Payment by e-Check and Credit Card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard and VISA) must be made online by accessing EPay@UVa. An invoice from the University of Virginia School of Continuing and Professional Studies is required in order to make an online payment via e-Check or Credit Card.  Learn more about EPay@UVa.
