TPA Invoicing FERPA Disclosure
Portland State University is prohibited by the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
from releasing class names, descriptions, transcripts, grades, financial aid information, or information
about other charges. The student is responsible for providing this information to the sponsoring
organization if it is required. The student must authorize the Student Financial Services Office to release
necessary information to his/her sponsor for the purposes of Third-Party Agreement quarterly
invoicing. This may include electronic transmission methods (email, fax, etc.), if requested.
Sponsor Agreement
The TPA credit will be applied to the student's account prior to invoicing the sponsor. It is understood the
agreed upon charges are not dependent on attendance, obtaining a grade, performance and/or financial
aid status. If the sponsor does not pay the TPA invoice within 60 days of the issuance of the invoice,
Portland State University reserves the right to remove the TPA credit applied to the student’s account.
These charges will then be due and payable by the student. This action may cause the student’s account to
become past due and delinquent. The student’s account may be placed on hold. This hold will prohibit
future enrollment, transcript and diploma releases. The student will have 30 days to pay the balance in
full. If this account is referred to an outside collection agency, the student may be responsible for all
collection costs, interest, legal and court fees, if applicable.
