Catawba Valley Community College will accept sponsorship agreements in lieu of payment; however, the student will be responsible for all amounts owed if sponsoring agency does not remit payment in full.
A sponsorship letter of authorization must be on company letterhead and include the student's name, Social Security and/or Student ID number, the sponsor's billing address, contact person, phone number, what charges are covered, and any limits on amounts allowed.
Employers/sponsors may fax this information directly to the Business Office. Please also fax a current pay stub for the employee if you use this option. NC Employers and state agencies are invoiced at the in-state tuition rate. In order to receive the in-state rate, the sponsor must be the student's employer. Employment must be verifiable with a current pay stub showing North Carolina State Income taxes paid/withheld.
Volunteers and contract workers are not considered employees for invoicing situations. Sponsor invoices must be paid with company checks. Personal checks are not acceptable.
If you must pay a portion of your tuition and fees (perhaps your sponsor only authorized a certain amount or you may be taking a class that is not being paid by your sponsor), you may pay the remaining balance by the payment due date for each semester.
