Tuition Payments

Keeping Education Affordable!

Rising school operating costs are often passed onto the parents in the form of higher tuition. Smart Tuition helps to minimize these increases by relieving schools of internal costs that are involved with tuition collection. The Smart Tuition program helps support and secure the financial stability of your child’s school. This enables total focus on what counts the most, your child’s education. Smart Tuition manages the tuition payment program for your school and follows the policies established by your school. Tuition amounts, tuition aid, scholarships and other tuition related decisions are made by your school.

Payment Methods

Your school asks that you pay tuition by automatic deduction or monthly bill. Choose the payment method that best suits your family’s needs:

  • Automatic Deduction: Have your payment automatically deducted from your bank account or credit card. Automatic deduction is convenient and reliable. Monthly payments are made automatically, and you never need to worry about reminders, postage, lost checks, mail delays, etc. You have total security due to the strict rules that govern the automatic deduction system. Your confidentiality is protected at all times.
  • Monthly Bill: Receive monthly invoices. This option provides you the flexibility of mailing in your payment, making a phone-in payment, or paying online at

Common Questions

What does SMART do?
Smart Tuition receives your payments, processes them, and deposits the funds into your school’s bank account. Our secure website and 24/7 parent help center are available to families that have questions about their tuition payment plans.

Will you share my information with other companies?
NO. Your privacy is important to us. We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers or former customers to anyone except permitted by law. Smart Tuition has adopted numerous procedures to protect the confidentiality of school and family information. We adhere to the Payment Security Industries Standard for storing card holder data.

Why would I provide you with my bank account number or credit card information?
Many parents who are pressed for time prefer an error-proof system of automatic deductions vs. the traditional mail-in payments. Smart Tuition informs you of the amount that we will deduct from your account through an email notification 10 days prior to your due date. This is the fastest, safest, and most convenient payment option. * Note: Not all schools allow for credit card transactions on the account. Please ask your school if this option is available.
