The Cashier’s Office at Missouri S&T directly bills sponsoring agencies for tuition and fees. Additional details about third-party billing is available on the Cashier’s website.

Sponsoring agencies are required to provide a financial guarantee letter that outlines the terms of the scholarship. A financial guarantee is required before the student is issued an I-20 or DS-2019, before Missouri S&T can issue an invoice for tuition and fees, and in order for a student to maintain their valid immigration status. Financial guarantees are additionally a requirement of International Students to provide proof of financial support. This must remain valid at all times during the student's program. International Enrollment requires Sponsored Students to receive proof of support by their SEVIS registration deadline. 

 Sponsoring agencies or Sponsored Students can email financial guarantees to iasss@mst.edu. They must remain valid and be provided prior to SEVIS registration. 

 The financial guarantee must be formally addressed to Missouri S&T, and must include the following information:

  • Student’s name
  • Duration of sponsorship validity
  • Approved major and degree level
  • List of expenses covered by the sponsor that should be invoiced
  • Sponsor’s billing information, including contact name, mailing address, and email address

Sponsoring agencies may have specific scholarship guidelines. Sponsored Student Services will help guide students to meet these requirements. We ask students to sign an Letter Request Form which allows us to share student information with their sponsoring agency. 

We provide official transcripts to sponsoring agencies at the end of each semester. We can provide verification letters and guide students who are requesting sponsor approval for concurrent enrollment and online coursework.    

The Sponsored Student Services office provides advising services to students and sponsors and serves as a liaison between the student, their sponsor and the university.
