Sponsor's guide to third party billing

Are you a business or organization interested in paying educational expenses for five or more PCC students? Set up a third party billing arrangement with us so that we can bill you directly. (If you sponsor fewer than five students per term, have the student authorize you to pay their bill in PCC-Pay instead of setting up a third party billing arrangement.)

How to set up third party billing

  1. Set up formal billing arrangements with PCC

    Contact Student Account Services and let us know you would like to make arrangements for third party billing.
  2. Prepare billing authorizations

    Authorizations must be submitted on your official letterhead and include the student's name, PCC ID, and an itemization of all charges to be billed. To set up multiple-term authorizations, specify which terms to authorize (limited to one academic year). All third party billing accounts must provide a valid US mailing address.

    • Eligible charges: include tuition and mandatory class fees (lab, distance learning, student activity, college service, technology, and transportation), parking permits, billing fees, and late charges.
    • Book authorizations: submit directly to the bookstore by fax (971-722-4371). Do not combine tuition and bookstore authorization or payment.
    • Restrictions: payment cannot be contingent upon grades or successful completion of class, enrollment, attendance, or financial aid status.
  3. Submit authorizations

    Bring to any campus Student Account Services, or fax to 971-722-2816, attention "Third Party Billing".
    • Billing authorization deadline: authorizations are due by the payment due date and must include the student's PCC ID number. Late authorizations may result in deletion of the student's course registration.
  4. Make payment

    Payment is due upon receipt of invoice. For billing fees, please refer to the table below. Important! To ensure proper credit, reference your PCC Vendor ID and invoice number on your remittance. Do not combine payment with other PCC invoices.
    • Unpaid charges: Released to the student after 45 days and become ineligible for re-billing. Students are instructed to follow-up with their third party sponsor.
