Populi

Billing that works with the rest of your college.

Manage student billing with the same software the rest of your school uses. Tuition and fees are integrated with course registration so you can automate charges. Students can access their invoices, statements, and tax forms. Online payments, financial aid, donations, and an exportable general ledger complete the picture.

Online payments

Start accepting credit cards and electronic checks through Populi using Stripe or Authorize.net. Students and third parties can pay tuition and fees. Anyone can shop in your Bookstore. You can even start taking online donations.

Financial aid

Track financial aid from the initial application all the way to disbursing funds. The ISIRs importer captures all the key FAFSA data. Field your students’ questions right from their aid application, and carry on correspondence via email. Students can accept and decline awards online. You also get batch disbursement tools, Federal Work Study, and automatic 1098-Ts to simplify your big tasks.

Donations

Take online donations or record the old-fashioned kind. Campaigns and appeals help you track how well your fundraising efforts are working. Together with Populi's communication and contacts features, you can keep up with your donors and advance your school's mission.

Tuition and fees

Automate your tuition schedules with custom brackets, refund policies, and even custom fee rules. Populi automatically updates charges and refunds as students register for or drop courses. Then invoice your students in batches, or just one at a time.

Everyone’s in the loop

Your students get automatic alerts about their upcoming and overdue invoices. See their charges in detail on their profiles—courses that triggered tuition, why certain fees kicked in, how much was paid, and when. At-a-glance account summaries, detailed statements—and more—make it easy to keep everyone informed.

Reporting

See transactions, payments, unpaid invoices, and more in detail for any given period—by term, by year, or any custom date range. Keep an eye on academic progress for your financial aid recipients. Generate and distribute electronic 1098-Ts. And if you need something that's not built in, the API lets you get at your financial data however you need it.
