  • Reach Affordability: By allowing students to pay over time versus the full year upfront, attending your institution becomes much more affordable for students and much more manageable for families supporting their students in the U.S.
  • Reach Out to Families: Use International Payment Plans for a recruiting and retention strategy, allowing your current and prospective students to see how your institution works with them and their home currencies.
  • Reach Retention Goals: Students can stay in the U.S. longer if they can pay over time. Ease the worry of your families having to come up with large sums of money and instill confidence and comfort knowing that they can pay in their local currency, simplifying the collection process.
