Credit Card Acceptance and Service Fee Information

Christian Brothers University has contracted all credit and debit card processing to TouchNet Information Systems, Inc.

What is TouchNet? TouchNet Information Systems, Inc. is a PCI-PA-DSS-compliant (Payment Card Industry Payment Application Data Security Standard) vendor focused on safeguarding cardholder data for thousands of college students. In fact, TouchNet is the only commerce provider serving higher education that is certified as both PCI-DSS and PA-DSS compliant.

Unfortunately, credit and debit card payment processing has become increasingly expensive due to the processing fees charged by credit card companies coupled with the costs associated with securing cardholder data.

A 2.95% service fee (minimum $3.00 fee) is assessed on all credit and debit card payments processed by TouchNet and they must be processed online. The service fee is established by TouchNet to cover credit card processing costs and will not show up on your student account. It will appear on your credit/debit card statement and is non-refundable. We no longer accept credit/debit card payments at the counter or over the phone, however, there are terminals in the Business Office for making these payments online.
