Payment Processing - Student and HEI


  • Although there has been reference to the ‘MACR incident’ from September / October 2012 on a number of occasions, we must remember that in AY 12/13 there were significant changes associated with Attendance Confirmation process.

  • Allowing for the incident itself, we did successfully process payments for all Instalments, with a value of:-

  • Close engagement continues between SLC and HEI partners.

  • Building on the experience from the launch of the new multiple confirmation of registration/ attendance process of last year, we appreciate the importance of clearer and concise communication, with a shared commitment to delivery of a successful payment cycle.

  • We have to get the payment processes right for both students and HEIs. We are dependent on the smooth operation of SLC and external systems. Monitoring and communication is key.
