* This will not affect most of you, as many of you are already set up for ACH auto-pay.
Dear SLC Families,
Due to a sharp rise in tuition processing fees on credit and debit cards we are encouraging all families that are currently using credit or debit cards for tuition to switch their method of payment to automatic withdrawal through the automated clearing house (ACH). Previous to implementing the current Pre-School billing software our policy was to only accept Credit Cards for initial deposits and overdue tuition. Our intention was never to rescind that policy. Our current software and affiliated billing company has facilitated Credit Card and Debit Card use that is not offset by any benefit they provide. With that said, we will implement both a rate increase and an ACH auto withdrawal discount on the 14th of October. You may choose what works best for your family.
Rate Increase: Beginning with the billing cycle the week of October 14th, weekly tuition rates will increase by $10.00/week for all age groups attending full time, with part-time rates increasing by $7.00/week.
ACH Discount: Coincidentally, the week of October 14th, we will begin offering a $10.00/week discount for anyone paying by ACH for full time students, and $7.00 off for part time. ACH tuition payments are automatically withdrawn the Friday preceding the week of attendance or between the 1st and 3rd of each month. Our monthly discount still applies. Payment must be made in full, partial payments will void the ACH discount.
Please let us know if you have any questions on ACH billing and don't forget to check our handbook for any other discounts that may be available to your family. We are sorry for any inconvenience regarding switching to ACH. Please stop by the counter for a Tuition Express form if you need one or download one from the website parent portal.
Thank you for entrusting us with your children,
Steve & Karla Carta
