With Smart Tuition, St. Agnes will offer three payment plans. One-time payment due by July 1, Payment by Semester, due July 1 and December 1, or a 10-month payment plan due on the first of each month beginning July 1 through April 1. The monthly installment option incurs a 3% deferral fee. All class fees are non-refundable and are due by July 1.
Payments may be made to Smart Tuition by:
- Automatic direct debit (ACH) from bank checking or savings account
- Automatic month debit from debit or credit card
- Payment by bank draft, credit, or debit card by phone
- Payment by bank draft, credit, or debit card online
- Online banking service from payer bank account
- Check or money order by mail
Online Banking Services
Online bill pay services might not transfer funds electronically to Smart Tuition. Some banks may mail paper checks instead. Please set online bill pay to occur at least 7-10 days prior to the payment due date to ensure that the check is received and processed by your scheduled due date.
Two Types of Automatic Debit Payments
Smart Tuition offers automatic deduction from a bank account (ACH), or automatic recurring payment via debit or credit card. A 2.85% fee applies to payments made by credit or debit. Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express are all accepted.
Payer ID# / Account Number is Updated Each Year
Smart Tuition updates account numbers each year. This means that payer banking information must be updated each year to include the new account number. The update is necessary so that funds get allocated to the correct school year. Payers should be encouraged to include the correct account number on their payment.
All late payments will incur a $40 late fee. A $30 fee is applied for failed ACH debit transactions or for returned checks. This fee is payable to Smart Tuition and cannot be credited by SAA.
It is the policy of the Board of Directors that all financial obligations to the school must be kept current in order for the student to continue at St. Agnes Academy, for documents to be released (report cards and transcripts). Students with a delinquent balance will not be allowed to re-enroll for the next school year until all financial commitments are paid in full. Enrollment at St. Agnes Academy is understood to be for the full year. All class, lab, curriculum and AP test fees are non-refundable and are due by July 1.
