Don’t Stress: Just Put ScholarNet to Work Managing Things

The first few weeks of the spring semester can feel pretty hectic, knowing you have so many students and families relying on you to correctly disburse the correct funds needed to keep students in school. Days are busy, nerves are frazzled—and more than a few of us may feel hangry as we struggle with our New Year’s resolution to eat healthy.

If you’re using ScholarNet® to automate and manage the exchange of data and disbursement of funds, then you’ve made a good decision. Give yourself a congratulatory pat on the back for having the foresight to prepare for the chaos of disbursement season. If you’re not, here are some things you could enjoy if you started using ScholarNet.

Reports and SmartSearches

ScholarNet’s smart, smooth automation helps keep the emotion out of the disbursement process by giving you easy-to-use reports that help you see what funds are coming in for each student from various private lenders. No matter how much you prepare, you may have forgotten to cancel a disbursement for an ineligible student—or may find yourself screening questions from frantic families about where their funds are. Use ScholarNet to effortlessly return funds or look up expected disbursement dates with ease.

You can quickly and easily set up customized, on-demand reports to track certain groups of students with ScholarNet. The innovative technology and user-friendly experience SmartSearches provide help you find changes that haven’t completed processing.

Now is when you want to use ScholarNet’s reports and SmartSearch capabilities to verify the funds you have coming in, easily make changes or cancellations, confirm those changes, and prevent unwanted disbursements. This saves you and your students time and hassle, both now and later by smartly and swiftly managing the accurate flow of funds.
