The move means that the schools now have the opportunity to collect school fees from their students as well as parents and guardians through the 18 branches of Capital Bank in seven regions.
As many as about 16 schools have signed onto the Capital Bank fees collection platform as at July.
They are University of Ghana; Central University; University of Education, Winneba; African University College of Communications, Accra; Ghana Institute of Languages; the Presbyterian University College, Abetifi-Kwahu and the Methodist University College.
Others are the Christian Service University College, Kumasi; Koforidua Polytechnic; Jackson Education Complex, Kumasi; Shield International School, Adenta-Accra; and Legacy Girls College in Akuse, Eastern Region.
The rest are Bright Brains International Academy in Roman Ridge, Accra; Ensign College of Public Health at Kpong in the Eastern Region, Republic Academy School and Elmhurst Independent Nursery & Primary at Dansoman in Accra.
With most schools reopening for the new academic year in August, Capital Bank is therefore urging students, parents and guardians to use its platform to settle their fees.
Commenting, Managing Director and Chief Executive Bank of Capital Bank, Fitzgerald Odonkor said Capital Bank has designed a fluid transactional banking platform that makes payment of fees easy, simple and convenient.
“Our focus is to continue to develop customer-focused solutions for various strategic segments and as such we will continue to roll out innovative solutions relentlessly.”
“Our collections platform offers end to end convenience for both the schools and their clients due to a high system integration, which ensures that fees paid, reflects instantly.”
