Can I register for classes if I have not paid my bill?

How is a third-party payment (e.g. Vocational Rehabilitation) credited to my account?
Upon registering for classes, submit appropriate paperwork to the Student Accounts Manager at Financial Services for processing and billing. The third party will be invoiced at the end of the drop/add period.
