Texas Woman's University to Enhance Flexibility for Students Through Addition of Higher One's Suite of Payment Products

NEW HAVEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Higher One, a leader in providing services to higher education administrators and students at more than 1,600 campuses across the U.S., announces that Texas Woman's University will implement several components of the Higher One Payments Solution in 2013. The addition of this suite of payment products will provide students, parents and sponsors more flexibility in how payments are made to the University, both online and in-person. TWU will benefit from increased efficiency and more robust reporting as a result of expanding the University's relationship with Higher One. TWU has partnered with Higher One since 2005 for providing refund disbursement choices to its students.

This year, TWU will add the following services:

  • Electronic billing
  • Online Payments
  • Cashiering
  • Back Office Cashiering
  • Online Storefronts
  • Payment Plans
  • ERP Integration

"We've been steadily expanding the scope of our e-commerce operations for years, and Higher One has been a valued partner in that endeavor," said Kelly McCullar, Associate Vice President-Finance, Controller & Treasury for Texas Woman's University. "When we looked at the possibility of transitioning to Higher One for acceptance of online payments, there was a strong sense of trust based on our long-term relationship with Higher One that they could deliver what they promised. It made sense for us to increase the breadth of our relationship with Higher One and utilize resources from a single entity to streamline our processes."

A growing number of colleges and universities, like TWU, have partnered with Higher One to improve efficiency in the campus business office and gain better access to data to help improve graduation rates. Higher One is uniquely positioned to help campuses as they navigate current challenges such as rising tuition costs, a changing regulatory environment and retention.
