Herring Bank
Herring Bank

2201 Civic Circle, Amarillo, TX 79109

Herring Bank offers a variety of solutions, such as Funds Disbursement, Campus ID and Badges, Closed Loop Management, Meal Plan Management, Building Access, Online Payment Processing, and flexible Tuition Plans. Student refund choice is a popular program that has helped colleges drastically reduce the number of paper checks issued to students for reimbursements. Herring Bank works with each college's ERP provider to integrate our solution for real-time student account choice decisions. Our software presents a message box within the college's student portal nudging the student to make a refund decision. The student can input their personal account info, or instantly create a Herring Bank account with accompanying Debit MasterCard. If the student does not make a refund choice, the message re-appears the next time the student logs in.
