Heartland Payment Systems Campus Solutions division, in partnership with Bridgeway Solutions, an identification and security solutions provider, has been chosen as one of South Carolina’s preferred system providers for electronic disbursement of financial aid refunds and payments to students.
This agreement enables South Carolina state colleges and universities to contract with Heartland’s partner Bridgeway for Heartland’s Acceluraid electronic financial aid disbursement product without having to issue a request for proposal as is traditionally required by the state.
Whether chosen as a standalone solution or integrated with Heartland’s complete Campus OneCard System, Acceluraid provides a simplified campus refund process by eliminating paper checks, increasing operational efficiencies, and reducing the costs, delays and operational hurdles associated with financial aid disbursement. Student benefits include faster and more convenient access to financial aid funds without being charged pin debit and other fees.
Students also receive a school-branded Discover prepaid debit card. When activated, students’ financial aid funds are automatically deposited to the card and they can then use their funds anywhere Discover is accepted.
