Factoring is a short-term financing tool where CAM purchases your school’s future state-aid and advances the capital to you now. Factoring is great to fuel enrollment growth, mitigate state-aid deferrals, and bridge cash gaps. Although factoring is fast and reliable, we recommend using it for urgent situations and as a last resort.Read More
