I. OBJECTIVE The objective of this policy to define the tuition program for Purcell Marian High School (Purcell Marian), while also providing a framework that promotes consistency and supports predictable and sustainable cash flow for Purcell Marian. This policy addresses payment options, payment timelines, use of third-party tuition processors, and account delinquency intervention procedures.
II. ADMISSIONS PROCESS Applications for admissions may be found on the Purcell Marian website with a link for online registration. Prospective students will apply for admission in accordance with the Purcell Marian Admissions Policy. Current students who will be returning in the subsequent school year may register on-line in mid-March subject to a non-refundable registration fee that will be payable upon registration. Additional information can be found in the Payment Plans section.
III. PAYMENT PLANS Purcell Marian outsources tuition management to FACTS, a third-party tuition management services provider. Purcell Marian families are required to register with FACTS and set up a payment plan for either automatic withdrawal from a bank account or charge to a credit card. Every family must establish a FACTS account by June 30 prior to the start of the school year, even if tuition is paid in full, as certain school fees will also be billed via FACTS. If a family is enrolling at a later time, a FACTS account must be established at the time of enrollment. If a payment plan has not been established by June 30, the student may be ineligible to begin classes for the current school year. Lack of a FACTS or Purcell Marian payment plan does not excuse a parent/guardian from responsibility for the tuition charges/fees. Purcell Marian families have the following options for payment:
1. Payment in full (single pay option no later than July 31)
2. ½ of the tuition paid to FACTS or Purcell Marian office by July 31, and the remainder paid by December 31
3. ¼ of the tuition paid to FACTS or Purcell Marian office by July 31, and the remainder financed from August to April of the academic year
4. 10 monthly payments – begins July 1 or 15 and ends April 1 or 15
5. 11monthly payments - begins June 1 or 15 and ends April 1 or 15
There will be a one time, NONREFUNDABLE, registration fee at the time of registration. If the registration fee is not paid, a student is not registered.
There is an annual Student Fee a for all enrollees. An additional Senior Fee will be accessed to all students in the Senior class., The following payment plans may be utilized for payment of the fees:
1. Payment in full by August 31
2. 2 payments, one in August and one in January
3. 4 payments, one in August one in November one in January and one in March
All students, in order to be eligible for co-curriculars, such as sports, field trips and retreats must pay $500 of the Student Fee by November 30th; students will not be permitted to participate in Winter co-curriculars until $500 of the Student Fee has been paid. Students who have not paid at least $750 of their Student Fee will not participate in Spring cocurriculars. For families who have a current payment plan with FACTS and have registered for the next school year, the family’s existing FACTS schedule will automatically be used for the next school year unless the family contacts FACTS.
IV. SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID Scholarship and financial aid will be awarded before the end of January for those who meet the priority deadlines. Financial aid and scholarships will be awarded at the discretion of the Scholarship Selection Committee based upon an approved budget. The Accounting Specialist will communicate to FACTS any financial aid or scholarships awarded on behalf of school families. The families’ FACTS account will then be credited accordingly. Families of students eligible for Jon Peterson or EdChoice Funds must submit an application directly to the State of Ohio, If approved, the family will then provide a copy of their signed letter of acceptance, which will be kept on file in the Purcell Marian Business Office for future references.
V. DELINQUENT TUITION The goal of Purcell Marian’s tuition policy is to provide a sustainable financial model for the long-term success of the School. It is in the best interest of all – parents, school administrators, and students – to honor our commitments to one another. The timely remittance of tuition payments is one of those commitments. If a family has determined that they cannot afford tuition, and appropriate channels of financial aid have been explored to no avail, it is not the responsibility of Purcell Marian to continue to provide educational services to the child. All student accounts must be kept current throughout the school year, in accordance with the FACTS payment plan selected by the family, with the following consequences for delinquent accounts:
• Students with outstanding tuition or fees balances at June 30th (including damaged text books, lost library books, etc.) from the previous school year may not be permitted to register for the current school year;
• Students who are attending second semester classes and are not current with tuition and fees by April 30 will not receive their report card or transcript (for seniors), and if registered for the subsequent school year, will be in forfeit of registration until the account is paid in full.
• Students with accounts 90 days past due are subject to withdrawal for non-payment of tuition.
Access to student or parent information (including grades, report cards, and transcripts) may be withheld until a tuition account is current on any past due balances.
Payments returned to Purcell Marian by the presenter’s bank will incur an additional $35 NSF (non-sufficient funds) charge per occurrence.
An official withdrawal form must be completed with Purcell Marian’s Assistant Principal in order to stop tuition or fees from continuing to accrue. A withdrawal credit will be calculated to the end of the quarter following the approved withdrawal date, less any unpaid tuition or fees, and will be refunded to the parent/guardian of the withdrawing student.
If the family has extenuating financial circumstances and does not believe they have the ability to honor their current commitment using the payment schedule established for their FACTS account, they are required to contact the Business Office immediately and may be required to attend an in-person meeting with the Business Office. At the meeting, the circumstances will be discussed and a payment plan will be proposed, which then must be approved by the Principal, before the child may continue classes for the following semester or the next school year. Circumstances such as this are deemed to be unusual in occurrence and will be addressed by the Principal on a case-by-case basis.
