Blackboard and eFunds for Schools partner to bring school payments to parents’ fingertips


It’s obvious by now that world has gone mobile. From attending virtual classes to joining on-the-go meetings to catching up with family and friends, mobile access has become an expectation across all functions of daily life. Paying for school-related items is no exception. Research has shown that over 50% of a school’s parents will make payments on mobile devices. That’s why we’re excited to announce our partnership with eFunds for Schools (EFS), providing another great option for schools and districts to facilitate school-related payments online and through mobile devices.

Together Blackboard and EFS have built an integration which enables parents to browse all payment items relevant to their preferred school(s) through the Blackboard ParentLink mobile app. Once a payment item is selected, the user is taken to the secure EFS system where payments can be made via checking account, debit card, or credit card 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No more check writing or depositing. No more worrying about handling cash transactions. EFS gives schools a clear path to a cashless campus.

We invite you to learn more about how EFS can simplify your school payments and deliver a streamlined payment process for parents and community members. Ready to get started? Contact EFS today at
