Frequently Asked Questions

No. No one other than you and your financial institution has access to your account. When you set up automatic payments, you are solely authorizing an automatic payment.
Yes. You have more privacy with automatic payments than by writing a check. Bank research has shown that as many as 10 people handle a check from the time it is written until the funds are finally deducted from your account. Most checks include your name, address, phone number, and other financial information which can be easily copied. With electronic payments, the transaction passes electronically from bank to bank. Any information you share with us is completely confidential. We do not share any information with unauthorized third parties.
When we receive your agreement, we send you a letter or email confirming the original terms of your agreement. This includes your payment amount, balance due, and date you authorized payments to begin. Payments will continue until the total balance is paid in full.
If you do miss a payment, you will receive a notice from us with instructions on how the missed or returned payment will be handled. You may also be assessed a $30 returned-payment fee for each attempt that is returned, but only if the return is because of non-sufficient funds. This fee is assessed in part to offset the fees FACTS is assessed by our financial institution when your payment is missed or returned. In addition to our fee, your institution may assess a fee as well.
Any changes to payment dates or amounts may need to be approved by the school and the school will then need to notify FACTS. All changes must be received by FACTS at least two (2) business days prior to the automatic payment date in order to affect the upcoming payment.
