Acadeum | College Consortium payment accounts are activated in a few easy steps and allows you to collaborate and pay or charge any institution on the platform once wired up. You will begin payment setup over email with the help of your implementation manager and the support team.
1) Primary Finance Contact (“PFC”) established:
Each institution is required to establish a primary contact at their institution to handle all financial affairs for activity using Acadeum’s platform, referred to as the Primary Finance Contact (“PFC”). This individual will verify the account with an Acadeum admin during an initial set up period, will receive all email notifications of activities per transaction including invoices, and will act as the point person to Acadeum admins for any payment related questions.
2) Payments account created:
All payments on Acadeum are processed by automatic ACH debit or credit through payment processor Stripe. Each institution sets up a payments account with Acadeum by providing the institution’s ACH banking information. The payment method provided will be used to make payments for annual fees and enrollment fees.
To add a bank account you will need to follow the steps below:
Authorize Stripe ACH IDs
3) Establish a Stripe Vendor Account [TIs Only]
If you are a Teaching Institution, you will also need to establish a Stripe vendor account. This will allow you to receive payments from Acadeum. Acadeum will guide you through this process and you can read more here.
