A Sponsor is an agency or organization who supports a student(s) by paying for some or all their tuition, mandatory fees, and other charges. If you are a sponsor, please email the following information to bursar@mines.edu.

1. Please fill out the ‘Sponsor Authorization Form’ by Census Day. This form will be used to determine which charges the your agency elects to pay.

2. Provide us with a list of students you will sponsor.

Please note: Mines does not accept the student’s Financial Guarantee Letter for billing purposes. Any funding changes by the Sponsor must be communicated to the Bursar’s Office.


Sponsored Student

If you are a sponsored student, an agency or organization will pay for part or all of your tuition, fees, and/or other charges.

In order for the sponsorship payment to be applied to your account, please complete the following items:

1. Email bursar@mines.edu the completed ‘Sponsored Student Agreement Form’ by Census Day. This form will allow us to release billing, enrollment, and other relevant information to your sponsor for the duration you specify.

2. For VA Students Only – Submit a ‘Benefit Request Form’ (BRF) to the Registrar’s Office by Census Day of each semester that you wish to use your benefits. Forms can be submitted at any time during the semester, however, any late fees assessed prior to submissions will be the student’s responsibility.

You will not be a considered a sponsored student if the above items have not been completed and if your sponsor has not confirmed your eligibility.

Please note: in accordance with the Student Financial Responsibility Agreement (SFRA), students are ultimately responsible for their cost of attendance at Mines. If the sponsor determines that the student is no longer eligible for their sponsorship (even after they have paid), they do not pay within 45 days of the billing date, or they do not cover all the charges, the student is responsible for paying their account balance in full.
