What does it mean to be a sponsored student?  

At the University of Utah, we categorize sponsored students as undergraduate or graduate students who meet specific criteria: 

Financial Support: Sponsored students receive financial assistance from a third-party organization (sponsor) for their education at the university. Sponsors are usually government entities or private companies. 

Invoice Handling: The university takes care of invoicing the student's sponsor directly for tuition and fees, managing the payment process on behalf of the student.
