Financial Guarantee Letter

To maintain sponsorship status at the University of Colorado Denver, students must have a valid Financial Guarantee Letter (FGL) on file prior to the first tuition payment deadline of each semester. Students must submit the FGL to the Sponsored Student Coordinator in the Office of International Affairs. Students can email the FGL to

Requirements of a valid FGL

  • Sponsor Information (Organization/ Government Name, mailing address, email address, telephone number)
  • Student Name with student ID
  • Student Degree/ Major (must match with University record)
  • Validation period covering the entire term (example: Spring 2021 or January 2021 – May 2021); if the dates do not cover the full term, the letter will be considered invalid.
  • Charges covered by sponsorship (tuition, fees, health insurance, online/hybrid courses, etc.)
  • Charges not covered by sponsorship (if applicable)
  • Billing instructions (mail or email)
  • Billing contact information (if different from Sponsor Information)


If the student fails to submit a valid FGL by the first tuition payment deadline (listed on the Bursar Website) of each semester, the student will be responsible for paying their tuition and fees and any applied service charges and late fees that start to accrue. A hold will be placed on the student’s account for non-payment of any balance.. An account hold for non-payment of a past-due balance may prevent future class registration, access to official transcripts, and diploma release.

If a student submits a valid FGL to Sponsored Student Services after the tuition and fee deadline of a given semester, any applied late fees and/or service charges will remain the student's responsibility to pay. Late fees and service charges are not billed to the sponsor.
