The Automated Campus: Enabling the Future of Higher Education

Tech Shifts Student Loan Conversation From Loans to Installment Payments Student debt is top of mind as grads resume payments, but BNPL-like tuition installment plans can reduce the need for loans. The latest “B2B and Digital Payments Tracker®,” a collaboration with American Express, examines how technology can help students manage debt and colleges manage student loan programs amidst the slimmer budgets and tighter staffing of tomorrow.
Inside the August/September Tracker
  • PYMNTS interviews Ryan Audus, vice president of product strategy at TouchNet, about the joint problems of spiraling educational costs and student debt — and how technology plays a part in relieving both.
  • The growing dual risks of physical violence and cyberattacks affecting university campuses are prompting institutions to invest in automation and advanced mobile systems to head off these threats.
  • Automation is set to be a vital element of the campus experience — not simply to deliver on Generation Z’s expectations but also as a critical source of new revenue streams for colleges.
