Required Documents


To initiate third-party billing, your third-party sponsor must complete 2 documents:


1. A signed letter, on company letterhead, verifying the parameters of your sponsor’s payment. Please review the Third-Party Billing Letter Guidelines to ensure that your letter includes all the required information.

2. HMS-MD Third-Party Billing Form or HMS-MMSc Third-Party Billing Form, completed by your third-party sponsor. Please make sure you complete the correct form for your program.


The signed letter can be emailed to studentaccountoperations_fad@harvard.edu.


Suggested Deadlines


Please be sure that your third-party payer sends these documents no later than June 30th for fall term and November 15th for spring term. These deadlines concern financial clearance for registration only.


As long as your Third-Party Billing Form is received by the deadline listed above, you will be granted financial clearance for registration equal to the amount of your third-party payer's contribution. Third-Party Billing documents will be accepted through November for the fall term and March for the spring term. However, we can only send bills for the current semester and cannot bill retroactively for a previous semester.


NOTE: Having a sponsor does not relieve the student of their financial obligations to the University. If the sponsor fails to pay any amount for any reason, the student will remain responsible for paying their bill to the University.
