Widespread Processing Outage Preventing Fee Payments

We are experiencing issues with online payment card processing through Heartland (see their announcement below) .  The issue was first encountered around 7:45 a.m., and appears to be the result of a  a widespread problem that is affecting many of Heartland’s customers. While the issue is not affecting students’ ability to register for classes, those who are registering for classes likely are experiencing issues when attempting to make payments.

The North Orange County Community College District IT team is in contact with Heartland in an effort to monitor and resolve the issue. In the meantime, a message has been posted to Heartland’s payment page informing students of the issues and suggesting that they try again at a later time.

From Heartland:
