Fee Reimbursing Employer Deferment

You qualify for a Fee Reimbursing Employer Deferment if all or a part of your fees are to be reimbursed by a sponsoring agency or company, and reimbursement will not be made until the end of the semester when grades are turned in. It is your responsibility to contact the Office of the Bursar to insure proper credit has been posted to your account and to submit the following items by the fee payment deadline:

  1. Proof from your employer of their tuition reimbursement policy
  2. Signed Fee Reimbursing Employer Deferment Agreement
  3. Payment of the mandatory deferment fee ($70)
  4. Payment of the balance of your bill not covered by your employer

NOTE: This deferment is NOT required. If you pay in full or by personal deferment by the original fee payment due date, you will NOT be charged the $70 deferment fee.

If you opt for this deferment, the Office of the Bursar will defer the amount of fees authorized until 2 weeks from the date grades are posted on One.IU. This amount due is the responsibility of the student, regardless if the company has paid the student. The deferment form, paperwork, and fee must be completed each semester you want to do the deferment.

NOTE: If payment is not made by the deferred due date, your account will be flagged and a 1 1/2% late fee will be assessed. The flag will prevent you from registering for future semesters, but will be removed once payment is received.

IMPORTANT: A missed deferred payment will cause your account to be put on probation. More than 1 missed payment will cause you to be permanently ineligible for this deferment option. NO EXECEPTIONS.

Proof of your employer's tuition reimbursement policy must be on the letterhead of the company or agency, and should state exactly what type of fees and in what amounts the company or agency intends to pay. It must include the following information:

  • Student's name
  • Identification number
  • The amount and type of fees the sponsor intends to pay, i.e. course fees, lab fees or other mandatory fees associated with the course such as the technology and activity fee.

All students on the Fee Reimbursing Employer Deferment must sign a Sponsor Deferment Agreement in order to have their fees deferred. By signing the form, the student is agreeing to pay all fees by the new due date, regardless if the company has paid the student. The student is also agreeing to pay the deferment fee and any fees not covered by the sponsor/company. When the sponsored student chooses not to attend IU Southeast, enrollment must be terminated through the IU Southeast Office of the Registrar. Failure to remit payment in a timely manner could result in the Bursar's Office not accepting future authorizations from a sponsor/company.

Failure to submit the authorization, deferment agreement, and/or pay any balance due by the fee payment deadline may result in the assessment of a 1 1/2% late fee. If your fees have been totally deferred due to sponsorship, and you do not plan to attend you must notify the Office of the Bursar before the first day of classes.
