Houston CC Addresses International Currency Conversion with Higher One Feature
August 8, 2011
Two financial services companies have launched a joint feature that will allow institutions to accommodate international payments as effortlessly as they handle domestic payments from students. The first institution to sign on for the new service, Houston Community College in Texas, will be using the new feature within CASHNet ePayment from Higher One Payments. The latter company worked with Travelex Global Business Payments to create the enhancement. Higher One focuses on financial services specifically for the higher education segment; Travelex is a major non-bank provider of international payment services.
Before Higher One, our students only had one way to get their refunds, and that was by paper check. With Higher One processing refunds for us, it has allowed us to provide more options for our students without having to enter and store student banking information. We also no longer have to handle sorting, stuffing and mailing thousands of checks.University of West Florida
Higher One’s experience with college students and their focus on serving colleges distinguishes Higher One from all other financial service providers. We really liked the fact that the community college customer base is expanding for Higher One.St. Louis Community College
