Get P.A.I.D. is a conversation strategy that is designed to bring simplicity into our student interactions and negotiations.

To help prove this strategy, we will play examples from  4 real collection calls.

Looking Ahead: to PCI DSS 4.0 

While the PCI DSS 4.0 is still in draft, the anticipated fourth quarter release of the Standard may have you wondering what to expect and what you will have to do to remain compliant. We expect that the upcoming updates to the PCI DSS will include new and modified requirements to better support payment security in response to the novel ways that criminals are now stealing payment card data, as well as from lessons learned from the current Standard.

We discuss what will remain the same in the new Standard, as well as the new “customized validation” method, and the proposed timeline for PCI DSS 4.0 adoption and implementation.


  • Have a broader view of what to expect and how it will impact your institution
  • Gain an understanding of when PCI DSS 4.0 will be released (subject to change) and be applied
  • Be better prepared for your transition from 3.2.1 to 4.0
