Higher One enhances student experience with acquisition of PayDivvy’s social bill pay software

New technology strengthens OneAccount experience with advanced payments solutions

[New Haven, CT, August 1, 2013]Higher One, a leader in providing services to higher education administrators and students at more than 1,600 campuses across the U.S., has acquired a unique social payments solution from PayDivvy, Inc. The software provides a more effective way for college students to make person-to-person payments and manage the payment of bills with roommates or other groups.  

The acquisition of PayDivvy’s proven social payments software marks a continued emphasis on incorporating emerging technology to meet the ever-changing needs of an increasingly more mobile and collaborative student population.  

“We believe that consumers have complex payment needs every day that include everything from splitting a dinner tab to sharing an electric bill with their roommates,” said Whitney Stewart, Vice President of Product Management at Higher One.  “The PayDivvy software solution allows for a quick, fully-electronic easy way to track bills and make payments so consumers can focus on other priorities.”

Higher One Announces Innovative Web-Based Financial Literacy Program for High School Students

New Initiative in Partnership with EverFi, Inc. to Launch in Fifty High Schools Across U.S.

New Haven, CT, June 27, 2013 - Higher One, a leading provider of financial services and data analytics to over 1,600 colleges and universities, has announced a new partnership with EverFi, Inc., to bring critical financial literacy education to high school students through an interactive, web-based financial management program.

The Higher One Financial Scholars Program will be fully implemented in 50 select high schools by this fall across nine states at no cost to the schools or taxpayers. The states will include California, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon and Pennsylvania.

“This initiative stems from research indicating that effective financial literacy education must start early on to help students increase their ability to make sound financial decisions during college and beyond,” said Mary Johnson, Financial Literacy and Student Aid Policy Director at Higher One. “It is essential that we address this critical need—and this partnership furthers Higher One’s belief that all students can become financially savvy when given much-needed tools and information.”

Higher One to Send One Lucky Student to College Loan Free

Company Announces Tuition Freedom Sweepstakes, Grand Prize Winner to Receive up to $120,000 to Cover College Tuition Costs

[New Haven, CT, May 16, 2013]—Higher One, a leader in providing service solutions to higher education administrators and students at more than 1,600 campuses across the U.S., has announced its Tuition Freedom Sweepstakes, which will award one student up to $120,000 to cover the cost of college tuition. The sweepstakes provides the winning student the opportunity to graduate college without the burden of student loans.

“Higher One’s Tuition Freedom Sweepstakes will positively change the life of one lucky student,” said Miles Lasater, president and co-founder of Higher One. “As the national conversation brings attention to the issue of rising college costs and growing student debt, we work every day to help our university clients more effectively change the lives of millions of students.”

May traditionally marks the time when students finalize their college plans, in part based on their financial aid packages and student loan offerings. According to Mary Johnson, Director of Financial Literacy and Student Aid Policy at Higher One, this year also offers a new opportunity—a chance to live without student loan debt.

“The recently released report, Money Matters on Campus, found that 72 percent of incoming college students worry about money and student loan debt,” said Johnson. “At Higher One, we identified this sweepstakes as an opportunity to provide peace of mind to one student to graduate without the burden of tuition debt.”

The sweepstakes entry period is open through July 31, 2013, to all full- or part-time undergraduate students at a two- or four-year accredited college or university in the U.S., as well as to students who have completed undergraduate studies within the past six months. Official sweepstakes rules and entry form are available at www.tuitionfreedom.com.

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.Suzanne ClaggettUniversity of West Florida
