Transact and Delaware County Community College to Host Virtual Lunch and Learn Webinar, ‘Payment Plans: The Secret to Increasing Retention and Helping Students Lower Debt Before Graduation’

Free Discussion on April 20, 2021 at 2 p.m. EDT

PHOENIX, AZ (April 15, 2021) – Executives from Transact will join Delaware County Community College Director of Student Accounts LaShonda Thomas for a Virtual Lunch and Learn webinar on Payment Plans: The Secret to Increasing Retention and Helping Students Lower Debt Before Graduation. The discussion will be held on April 20, 2021, at 2 p.m. EDT.

Payment plans can be an effective tool in helping students at community colleges matriculate through their educational programs. In a recent Transact Payments survey, 53% of community college students were surprised to find their school provided a payment plan option for their tuition and fees. More broadly, 33% of all college students did not know how they would fund their academic dreams without the support of a payment plan, while another 33% knew they would not be able to attend college at all without using a payment plan.

During the session, Delaware County Community College and Transact will explain how payment plans can be utilized in financial aid packages to help with student retention, how institutions may self-manage their payment plans and tailor programs to student financial needs, and what options exist to expand awareness of payment plan programs in collaboration with other administrative marketing efforts.

The Virtual Lunch and Learn series supports local businesses by providing a $15 eGift card to college and university employees who attend these virtual events live.
