Student Billing

Sponsored students are those students who are enrolled at UC San Diego, and require UCSD to bill an outside agency (public or private sector sponsor including: military agency, educational institution, and international embassy) for tuition and fees.

Agency payments made directly to a student, or reimbursements to a student, are not considered third-party agreements. Please note that housing is not covered by sponsorship contract.

Sponsored Student Services Fee

In order to maintain a high level of quality service to our sponsored international students and their sponsoring organizations, the Sponsored Student Services Program within the International Students & Programs Office charges an administrative fee of $350.00 per student, per academic quarter (excluding summer session). This is billed separately from tuition, student fees, and other miscellaneous charges. 

Please see our Sponsored Student Services page for more information about the specialized support offered to our sponsored student population. For more information about this fee, please contact us at sponsoredstudents@ucsd.edu.
