  • University to Accept Tuition Payments Via Bit App

    Date: 2019-10-27 Hour: 14:24

    Home to 17,300 students Bar-Ilan University has signed an agreement with Bank Hapoalim's bit app, which will allow students to make their tuition payments via their smartphones. Bit is considered the leading payment app in Israel with over 2.2 million downloads.

    To date, students at Bar-Ilan University have paid tuition in various ways, including at the bank, the post office, and via the University website and call center. Beginning in 2020, they'll be able to pay immediately, safely, simply and quickly using a reliable method of payment without having to enter payment voucher and credit card information.

    A text message will provide details regarding payment due, and students will then be able to enter bit and pay directly from their smartphones, from anywhere, at any time, avoiding overdue payments and arrears.

    "This is a significant breakthrough that introduces a new form of payment into the world of higher education," said University CEO Zohar Yinon. "The new service we've developed, together with bit, will allow students to enjoy faster and more convenient payment, and the ability to track payment details. We will begin a pilot in advance of next year's enrollment, expanding the variety of services we currently offer our students."

    Bar-Ilan University students study for academic degrees at the University's eight Faculties of Law, Engineering, Life Sciences, Social Sciences, Exact Sciences, Jewish Studies, Humanities, and Medicine.
