IVS is pleased to announce the newest update to our Student Information System (Maestro):

SCHOOLS CAN NOW INSTANTLY VIEW IVS INVOICES AND SUBMIT ELECTRONIC PAYMENT IF DESIRED.
The biggest part of the new upgrade creates IVS invoices immediately upon enrollment, so school registrars can instantly access the IVS invoice and either print it to send with a check, or pay online through PayPal.   We have created a new help guide to show you How to View and Pay IVS Course Fees.

DID YOU KNOW that schools can now assign the IVS payment responsibility to students/guardians if the school is not paying the course fee? IVS now offers the option to either pay IVS course fees on behalf of the students (this is the default and historical method IVS has used) OR have the students/guardians pay IVS for course fees directly.  Please note this is changed at the organization level and is not assigned at the student level.

For more information on payment responsibility options, visit our “Costs and Payments” page.

NOTE:  Payment responsibility for course extensions will now be billed based on the school’s selected payment responsibility.

THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS FOR APPROVING COURSE REQUESTS HAS CHANGED.
The “Enroll Button” for approving pending student course requests is no longer available with this latest update.  BUT, the new process is easy – we have updated our help guide to Approve and Enroll Pending Student Course Requests.

IVS INVOICE CONTACTS NOW HAVE LOGIN PRIVILEGES.
Invoice Contacts that have been designated by their school on the IVS Partner Agreement and Contact Designation Form will now have access to view school and student invoice information.  You can view the IVS contacts for your school by visiting the “Organizations” tab in your account and clicking on your school name.

During the week of April 10, Lara will email each Invoice Contact in the IVS system to share this updated feature of our SIS. User names and passwords will be sent separately via the SIS system.  Please alert your invoice contact about this upcoming communication.

We hope that you will be as pleased as we are with the features that have been added to our SIS.
