Student Account Collections – Recovering Your Financial Future

ACT understands the sensitivity of dealing with former students, but we also understand that non-payment of student accounts will impact your institution’s ability to serve current students. Following all regulations, ACT collectors work to encourage borrowers to address their obligations in the near term in order to recover the possibilities of a brighter financial future. As applicable, our collection agents will counsel student borrowers through the options available to them, whether it be direct collection, administrative wage garnishment, administrative resolution, loan rehabilitation or consolidation.

ACT provides our college and university partners the tools, programs, data security, compliance certifications and resources to ensure we collect student accounts in a responsible and effective manner. From web-based reports and secure placement uploads, to access to compliance staff and webinars, educational institutions can trust ACT to deliver the best outcomes while providing outstanding service.
