Automated Billing & Payment Processing
What is automated billing and payment processing?
In 2009, Lycoming College introduced QuikPAY®, an electronic system for all students to view their bills, print their bills and make payments online. Through the QuikPAY system, an email will be sent to each student's official Lycoming College email address and any authorized payers email address every time a new statement is ready.
What company has the Lycoming College partnered with to provide this service?
Nelnet Business Solutions is providing QuikPAY, a hosted automatic billing and payment processing service. Our contract with them ensures that the processes are compliant with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB) Act.
Is Nelnet Business Solutions' QuikPAY website secure?
Lycoming College believes that security is a very important factor in providing eBilling and E-payment services. The technical architecture/security of the Nelnet Business Solutions service uses intrusion detection and firewall systems to protect the network.
Why did Lycoming College transition to automated billing and payment processing?
The College decided to move to automated billing and payment processing for several reasons, among them time and money savings. The QuikPAY service is available worldwide, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. There are no checks, envelopes or stamps needed to make a payment. Additional benefits include viewable billing and payment history as well as convenient access for authorized payers whom the students set up.
Are the Lycoming College online bills accessible to visually impaired students?
The Lycoming College electronic bill is ADA (American Disability Act) compliant and is accessible to students with disabilities.
How can I make an online payment?
Make Payment is an optional feature of QuikPAY. Checking and savings account information from a bank within the United States can be entered at the QuikPAY website and payments will be transferred electronically to Lycoming College. You will have the option to have the site retain your bank account information or you may enter it each time you make an online payment.
Authorized payers will only be able to view their own payment and bank information. Each authorized payer is assigned a separate password for added security and privacy.
Can I pay my eBill with a credit card?
MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accepted for tuition and fees paid over the web. When a credit card is used to make a payment, credit card companies will assess a merchant fee of 2.75% in addition to the tuition and fees.
E-checks will be available without a convenience fee. Similar to a debit card, e-check electronically debits a checking or savings account.
Students can log into WebAdvisor to make a payment.
Authorized payers, who have been set up in QuikPAY by their student, can go to the following link to login and make a payment.
