Smart Tuition

Smart Tuition is a monthly payment plan that makes it easy for you to:

  1. Choose what works best for you (monthly invoice, recurring automatic payment from your bank account or credit card).
  2. Pay one-tenth of your tuition bill every month.
  3. Access your account online (review transaction details, edit contact or payment method, make a payment or set up recurring payments).
  4. Receive payment and follow up reminders by email or phone 7-10 days before your due date for recurring payments
  5. Speak with a customer service representative 24/7.

Smart Tuition will bill you the $95.00 enrollment fee along with your first month billing so there is no need to include payment.  

Your timely response is most important.  If you should have any questions or need help in completing the form, please call Director of Administrative Services at the Parish Office at 425-2174 x216.
