Electronic Payment

Cedarville U Streamlines Tuition Payments

Cedarville University in Ohio is simplifying its tuition payment processing with technology from ACI Worldwide. ACI's electronic payment system allows students and parents to pay tuition and fees across multiple channels — via phone, web or in person. 

Looking for a convenient, efficient way to manage billing and payments for its 3,700-plus undergraduate and graduate students, Cedarville also wanted technology that could integrate easily with its Colleague by Ellucian ERP system. "When we needed a billing and payment solution capable of keeping up with student demands, we turned to Ellucian Self-Service and ACI's UP Bill Payment Solution, which provided an optimal payment experience," said Jon Shrubsole, director of treasury and regulatory services for Cedarville University, in a press release. "After researching other providers, ACI not only provided excellent integration with Colleague by Ellucian, but cost savings that others could not meet due to this integration."

"ACI and Ellucian co-developed a real-time interface providing rich integration into our Colleague by Ellucian software," explained Kari Branjord, senior vice president of product management for Ellucian, in a prepared statement. "This integration makes tuition payments easy for students and staff."
