I must have been asleep on this one.  I do see where it was started in late 2014.
I have two in Universities and it seemed they would have informed them of this. That's typical, of most higher learning institutions no problem taking the money, but most have poor communications and dissemination to students. It may be that most are now just getting the conversion of support ready with the new school year.
