Three more schools partner with Off-Campus Advantage

Off-Campus Advantage, a subsidiary of The CBORD Group, Ithaca, N.Y. and a provider of off-campus payment services for universities and colleges, has signed up three more schools in Mississippi, New York and Alabama to handle their off-campus payment programs.

The CBORD Group’s off-campus payment services are a program that offers back-end management of transactions or even merchant management, marketing platforms and incentive-based usage plans.

The company’s three new schools are: Jackson State University, Jackson, Miss.; the University of North Alabama, Florence, Ala.; and St. Lawrence University, Canton, NY.

Jackson State’s off-campus program is called the JSU SuperCard. Participating merchants were interested in more efficient transaction times and daily ACH reconciliation, while the students wanted to use their accounts at even more locations.

“With more than 80 merchants accepting the JSU SuperCard, taking care of the day-to-day merchant issues, as well as the monthly reconciliation and check cutting, were very time-consuming processes,” said Alcinia Pugh, director, office of contractual services at Jackson State. “By outsourcing the settlement process and merchant management with OCA, the JSU SuperCard staff is now able to focus on promoting the program on campus and on servicing our core constituency—students.”

The University of North Alabama (UNA) wanted to expand its decade-long self-administered off-campus program, the Mane Card. The university’s partnership with OCA will enable the company to rebuild the once-robust sales volume and participating merchant numbers.

St. Lawrence’s partnership with OCA will help the university grow its off-campus program by adding more merchants. OCA’s 24-hour service hotline, online reporting tool, and terminal upgrades were also motivators in outsourcing the program.

All three universities also utilize CBORD campus card solutions and can now take advantage of the integrations that exist between their card systems and OCA.
