Third Party Tuition Authorization
If your employer, or other organization, is going to pay for your class, a tuition authorization letter needs to be completed before you can enroll in the course. The authorization letter should be printed on company letterhead, and must include the following information: student name, course title, course CRN, dates, times, and a promise to pay, as well as the address where the invoice is to be sent. Please contact our Customer Service Center, 860-906-5130, for more information about tuition authorization letters.
