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 2016 or January 2016 – May 2016)
  • 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 any applied service charges. A hold will be placed on the student’s account for non-payment of service charges or if the balance due is greater than $50.00. An account hold will prevent future class registration, access to official transcripts, and diploma release.
