Find answers to important university processes, including how to claim commission and how to register undergraduate applicants with the University.


Claiming Commission

A significant part of our partnership will be when you claim for commission.

Every student you are claiming for has to be individually checked as fully registered.

In order to make this process as easy as possible, we recommend the following:

  • Please include all students on one claim. While we do accept additional submissions where students have been genuinely forgotten, fewer submissions help both parties to ensure there are no financial errors. The deadline for the claims will be confirmed closer to the time, but is usually around the end of November.
  • Claims must be submitted using the claim form sent to you by the commission team
  • Once verified, we will return a list of students you are eligible to claim commission for, along with a request for an invoice and a purchase order number
  • Claims for Department of Language Studies (DLS) students should be sent directly to DLS.
  • Do not include commission claims for students that have progressed to Sussex from the International Student Centre.

All commission claims for students starting at any other time in the academic year should be sent to us within two months of enrolling at Sussex. 

Commission will be paid to the agent that introduces a student to Sussex first.
