Third party billing is available for those students whose employers will pay for their tuition and fees regardless of their grades or class attendance.
If your tuition will be paid for by a third party, you must obtain either a voucher or a letter on letterhead indicating the third party's willingness to be billed for your classes. The letter must include the student's name, address and billing instructions along with an authorizing signature from the third party. A new voucher or letter is required each term and must be turned into the Harper College Business Office, A214, main campus by your payment due date to ensure you will not be dropped from your classes.
- Upon receipt of the Third Party Billing authorization the college will directly bill the company for the student's current term tuition and fees.
- The college does not monitor the student's grades or class attendance. It is the student's responsibility to furnish his employer with any information regarding attendance or grades.
- If for any reason the third party defaults on payment, the charges will be reinstated on the student's account and payment will become the responsibility of the student.
If you participate in College Illinois please notify the Harper College Business Office, A214, main campus or at 847.925.6880 of your intent to have your tuition and fees billed directly to College Illinois. This must be done by the payment due date to avoid being dropped for non-payment. The student is responsible for any charges that will not be covered by the plan and should also check with the Harper Business Office whenever schedule changes are made. This must be completed every semester that the student attends.
All other 529 plans must be contacted directly by the student to request payment. Be sure to allow sufficient time for funds to be received by Harper in order for the payment to be posted by the designated payment due date.
If your employer will be reimbursing you for your tuition, you must pay your account in full or set up a payment plan by the payment due date and submit the receipts to your employer.
Students can be subject to a 'Past Due Balance' hold if their student account meets one of the following criteria:
- They owe a balance for any semester prior to the current term.
- Their payment plan for the current semester is inactive or is repeatedly missing payments.
- They have a remaining balance on the current semester after the midterm period.
A 'Past Due Balance' hold has the following effects:
- Prevents students from registering for and dropping classes
- Prevents students from receiving/viewing transcripts
- Prevents students from receiving/viewing grades
A 'Past Due Balance' hold can be removed by completing one of the following:
- By paying off the outstanding balance in full
- By setting up a 'Past Due Balance Payment Plan' with the Business Office
- If you set up a payment plan, the first payment must post to your student account before we are able to manually remove the hold.
- If the payment has posted to your student account and the hold is still on please contact the Business Office to have it removed.
