Student Counter

Student Account Center

The Student Account Center provides a foundation of electronic payment services for student accounts that’s far from basic. It features consent manager, student payments, parent pay, stored payment profiles, access to real-time account balances, account activity, statements, deposits, payments scheduled in advance, real-time posting of payments to the campus ERP system, and more.

Transparent, Integrated Payment Plans

TouchNet Payment Plans lets you create, manage, and enroll students in tuition installment payment plans that you manage on campus, enabling you to turn setup fees and late payment charges into additional campus revenue streams.

Payment Plans lets campus administrators integrate installment payments in real time with campus ERP systems. It incorporates automatic recalculation of payment amounts when a student’s status changes, emails account change notifications, and converts static payment plans to dynamic, real-time plans. It can also automatically enroll students in new plans after they complete old ones.

Faster and Simplified:
The Next Generation of Refunds


Student refunds and financial aid disbursement are easy, safe, and reliable with eRefunds. In addition to robust reporting capabilities, this solution offers students a full range of refund options, including:

Direct Deposit

Refunds are processed and delivered via direct deposit to the student’s bank account, allowing schools to refund students in one to two business days.

Digital Checks

Emailing digital checks to the address on file in the school’s student information system gives students faster access and more control since they can print their refunds and deposit them in person or via their bank app. This method also reduces schools’ printing and postage costs.

Paper Checks

Students typically receive paper check refunds in three to five business days. Delivery can take up to 30 days in some instances.

Credit Card Refunds

Schools with an eRefunds license can refund a student’s credit card payment back to the credit card on file. Refunds can be processed through PayPath for schools offering this solution.

Instant Pay: Coming Soon

Instant Pay, an Original Credit Transaction feature, enables refund recipients to receive funds instantly on their Visa or Mastercard debit card instead of waiting for a direct deposit or a mailed check. Watch for this feature, which is coming soon.
