Tuition Payment Information

 

FACTS Tuition Managment

FACTS is a third-party company that services schools across the nation in the areas of Tuition Management and Financial Aid. TCS has partnered with FACTS to collect tuition as well as other costs associated with the education of your student. At the time of enrollment, you will be asked to set up your tuition payment plan and method of payment.

You may choose from a 10-month (July – April) or a 12-month (June – May) payment plan. Parents also have the option to pay for the year in full.The preferred method of payment for tuition and other costs is an ACH bank transfer. In addition, FACTS accepts credit card and check payments. A small fee will be assessed when using a credit card with FACTS.

May 15th is the deadline to select the 12-month tuition plan, June 15th is the deadline to select the 10-month tuition plan.

There will be a $35 charge for all returned checks. Parents enrolling on or after June 1st who want to pay on the 12-month plan must make up any missed payments.

Enrollment

Enrollment and re-enrollment for the upcoming academic year will begin early in the spring semester. Please visit the Enrollment Process webpage to complete enrollment forms. TCS Family Accounts must be current, up to the submission date of the re-enrollment packet, prior to enrolling your student for the upcoming school year.

Enrollment Fee

Enrollment for full school year (K4 – 12)                                                              $400

Enrollment for second semester only (K4 – 12)                                                   $200

Your student’s position in the class is secure once all entrance requirements have been satisfied and the Enrollment Fee is paid in full.

The Enrollment Fee is non-refundable.

Payment of Tuition

Monthly invoices for tuition payments will be sent to the parents prior to the due date.

Tuition payments are due the first day of each month. Accounts not current at the close of business on the first day of the month will be considered past due. If the first day of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, the due date will be the first day of business following the first day of the month.

Past due accounts will be given a grace period through the close of business on the 5th day of the month. Accounts past due in the amount of $100 or more at the close of business on the 5th day of the month will be assessed a $35 late fee.

If an account is past due at the end of the month, TCS may suspend the student from classes until the account is current. Parents anticipating financial difficulties should immediately contact the Administrative Pastor for consultation.

Official records, including transcripts, will not be released until a student's account is paid in full.

Withdrawal Policy

Registration constitutes a commitment for students to be enrolled for the entire school year; therefore, budgets and teacher contracts are set accordingly.  The early withdrawal of a student (whether by parent or dismissal by school) creates an opening which TCS may not be able to fill with a viable candidate.  Due to this, annual tuition is non-refundable, and any unpaid tuition is due before a student is permitted to withdraw.  Tuition paid prior to May 31st is refundable as long as the withdrawal process is completed by May 31st of the coming school year.  A withdrawal after May 31st of the coming school year requires the full amount of tuition through the end of that year to be paid. If enrolled in a payment plan the balance of that amount must be paid in full by continuing to pay the monthly payments or submit payment in full. TCS reserves the right to pursue any unpaid, outstanding balances utilizing a collection agency.  In extenuating circumstances, appeals to this policy can be made to the Finance Committee of Temple Christian School.

Withdrawal forms are available in the Administration Office. A student is considered enrolled until an exit interview has been completed with an Administrator, official withdrawal forms have been completed, and submitted to the Administration Office.

The Administration office requests a 24-hour notice prior to withdrawal.

Official records, including transcripts, will not be released until a student's account is paid in full.
