Your partner in finance administration
Payment Assist allows your staff to focus on providing excellent services for your students while we take care of payments.
Our understanding of the full scope of services required by education providers led us to develop Payment Assist. We delicately manage all aspects of student instalment plans – from set-up to managing payment failures, financial hardships and regular collections – so every aspect of tuition fees collection is taken off your hands.
Payment Assist provides peace of mind that more of your students can access quality education without the stress of funding. Even those who do not meet the criteria for our other financing options – such as Study Now Pay Later and Vocational Loans – can default to Payment Assist as an attractive funding alternative.
