Credit Card Payment

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Hi,

This is just a reminder that we can now take credit card payments for PeopleSoft holds. If a student calls or comes in and wants to pay for lost items via credit card they can do so. Please direct them to Heather Stenson, Hope Johnson, or Debra Sampson. If we are not here, you can take down the credit card information, including the credit card number, name on the card, billing address for the card, and expiration date. Please then pass this information along to one of us with the student’s name and ID number. We can not take credit cards for fines or for copy cards yet but we are working on a solution for that as well.

WGSN - New Fashion Database

Friday, January 29th, 2010

We now have access to WGSN.  We previously had access to a free educational version of WGSN, we now have a paid subscription to their professional site.  WGSN is a fashion database that provides access to 4 million images, information on trade shows, fashion trend analysis as well as information on interiors and beauty.

To access WGSN students will need to go through the proxy when they are off campus (they will need to enter their name and student id number).  Both students on campus and off campus will need to enter the Academy’s username and password on the WGSN login page.

username: academyart

password: wgsn200

You can give this username and password out to students.

This website causes some problems with a security certificate on our proxy server.  I have created a webpage that shows students how to get through the security warnings, you can find this page here:

Taking checks from students

Friday, January 29th, 2010

When a student is paying his or her fines with a check, make sure that the student ID number is on the check. If the student is here writing the check, ask that they do it themselves, and if we receive the check in the mail, go ahead and write the ID number on it yourself (if the student didn’t do so already). Accounts Receivable has gotten a lot of bounced checks in the past few months, and if they have the student’s ID number handy it’s easier for them to take appropriate action. If you have any questions just let me know!
