Learn more about how PayMyTuition will keep your institution safe from payment security risk and ensure your school is PCI DSS Version 4 compliant.

August 18, 2022 - Remaining in compliance as an educational institution requires regular audits and reporting as well as experienced, knowledgeable, and creditable staff. Payment security standards and regulations are always changing to ensure that cardholder data and payment system security is never at risk.

Institutions have the option to purchase a PA-DSS validated software application product themselves or work with a third-party provider, like PayMyTuition, who can relieve them of these compliance related burdens, allowing them to reallocate recourses and save costs. Learn more about how PayMyTuiiton will keep your institution ahead of the payments security game and safe from compliance-related risk.

PayMyTuition's direct integration into your Student Information System (SIS) takes the friction out of student payments.

Their implementation process has 4 simple steps:

  1. Exploration to develop your institution-specific deployment process.
  2. Initial implementation to install, configure, test and verify the integration in your test and staging environments.
  3. Production implementation to setup training, promote the solution to students, and push the solution into production.
  4. Finalize. We continuously monitor the integration in real-time to guarantee uptime and provide a seamless solution for your institution.

With PayMyTuition's plug-and-play containerized install, colleges and universities can experience seamless implementation of our innovative technologies directly into their Student Information Systems (SIS) to increase efficiencies with little to no manual intervention, all while being up and running in days, not weeks.
