How We Support Enrollment Management

We Help Keep Students Enrolled

Keep students enrolled and on track for graduation. We’ll help you offer (and organize) payment plans for every student – including international. We can also streamline student refunds, keep you in line with Title IV, and offer a digital student ID solution that doubles as a mobile payment tool.

Improve Student Retention

With plans that spread out tuition payments, higher education is more attainable for students. They can even stay enrolled and get back on track if they fall behind on payments.

Connecting Your Campus

Students can use one app to make in-person payments, scan in to rooms, and even order food from the dining hall – all on their phone.

Increase Payment Inclusivity

With the addition of our new International Payment Plans, you’ll make sure that everyone on your campus can make higher education more affordable.

Solutions For Your Department

Payment Plans

Make higher education more affordable and accessible for everyone. Keep enrollment numbers up, track specific groups of students, and easily accept payments made with virtually any currency.


Give students the power to choose their refund method – and make sure your financial aid office is Title IV compliant. Offer ACH, prepaid card, or check refunds and track their status in real time.

Campus Key®

Students are always on the go. With the Campus Key app, they have a digital student ID, keycard for buildings and dorms, and mobile ordering tool for the dining hall.
