Immediate Cost Savings

Santa Clara University wanted to provide more payment flexibility to its students and their families. With no electronic or online payment options, students and university employees were getting frustrated. Long lines at its billing office and the intensive amount of work required to process so many paper checks caused problems and cost money due to fees and the need for extra staffing. The institution knew it needed a better solution.


Santa Clara University worked with Transact to implement the company’s Integrated Payments solution. Now students and family members have the option to use a single, no-fee online platform for payments. The user-friendly account dashboard provides online access to manage payments, receive bills, view statements and tax forms, and receive account notifications. Students and parents are also able to see account information in real-time, which eliminates confusion related to payment due dates, balances, and more.

With the ability to accept a variety of tenders, from credit cards, ACH, and campus cards, to 529 plans, International Funds Transfer (IFT), and ApplePay, Santa Clara University has reduced the amount of effort and time it takes to process thousands of paper checks. Long lines and constant questions from students at the bursar’s office have also been virtually eliminated.
