Effective July 1, 2015

The University of Northern Iowa has entered into an agreement with University Accounting Service, LLC (UAS) of New Berlin, Wisconsin to provide billing services for your UNI Perkins Loan.  We are confident that the excellent service you have been accustomed to will continue with the change to UAS.

  1. Effective July 1, 2015, please direct all payments, forms, and correspondence to: University Accounting Service, LLC
    PO Box 3167
    Milwaukee, WI 53201-3167
  2. Continue to make checks payable to UNI and put your same account# in the memo section.
  3. If you had bill-payments set up through your bank, those should now be set up to go to UAS.
  4. If you have been making online payments on the Heartland/ECSI website, the last date to make a payment on that website will be Sunday, June 28, 2015.
  5. Any previous ACH recurring monthly electronic payment arrangements made with UNI will no longer be in effect after July 3, 2015.  You must re-establish your ACH recurring monthly electronic payment arrangements by going to beginning July 7, 2015.


  1. UAS will be providing billing statements beginning with payments due August 1, 2015.  We will no longer provide coupon books. A billing statement will be provided to you monthly.
