CASH PAYMENTS received by Daemen College

Pursuant to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules and regulations as described in Publication 1544: Daemen College is required to report to the IRS and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) the receipt of cash in excess of $10,000 in a single transaction, or two or more related transactions, from the same person (or agent) received in the course of the College's trade or business within a twelve-month period.

When Daemen College receives in excess of $10,000 in cash in a single transaction, or in two or more related transactions, it is required to obtain the following information regarding the payer and provide it to the IRS and FinCEN via IRS Form 8300:

1. Payer's name, address, date of birth, occupation, Social Security Number (SSN), or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).

FAQ:

Is there a fee to pay my bill online?

  • There is a 2.5% - 3.15% service fee on the amount being paid when you pay the college by debit or credit card. The fee is added to your debit or credit card. There is NO service fee if you choose to pay by electronic check (ACH).

Why is a fee charged?

  • Credit card companies charge businesses such as Daemen College for the use of their cards. Daemen College is partnering with ACI Payments, Inc. to offer online payments. The service fee covers the cost of processing the payment transaction and the security compliance and certifications requirements that ensure the protection of sensitive and personal consumer data.

Why has Daemen College started charging a service fee?

  • Daemen College is working to keep costs down while maintaining high-quality programs and services. While credit and debit card payments are a convenient way to pay your tuition bills, the cost to provide this convenience has grown dramatically such that it is no longer feasible to accept these payments. This change allows us to reduce operating costs from the budget while continuing to provide a variety of bill payment options to meet your needs. This change will benefit Daemen College and students by enabling the College to allocate the fee savings to other required costs.

Is Daemen College the only university charging service fees?

  • No, the changes in your credit/debit card payment structure are similar to those that have been adopted by many universities across the country where online credit and debit card payments are made available through a third-party processor who assesses a service fee for processing the payment. The service fee goes directly to the third-party processor to cover the fees charged by the credit and debit card companies.  Daemen College does not get to keep any of these fees.

Who is the third-party provider?

  • Daemen College has contracted with ACI Payments, Inc., a trusted third-party payments processing provider for the Internal Revenue Service, state government, and colleges and universities. Official Payments maintains PCI-DSS Level 1 certification as well as NACHA, FERPA, and GLB compliance. ACI Payments, Inc. is a licensed money transmitter in all states requiring such and adheres to state, federal, and banking security rules and regulations, and undergoes yearly security audits.
