Late Tuition Policies

DELINQUENT PAYMENTS

It shall be the responsibility of each school family to keep the FVL Business Office informed of their need to make any changes in their preferred tuition payment plan or adjustments in the amount of tuition expected to be paid. Without such information, the following policies will apply when tuition payments are received late.


I. Full Payment:

Any full payments for tuition made after July 31 will not receive the 3% discount of the net billable tuition. For those families not able to pay in full, the family will be expected to make all tuition payments through the FACTS or e~Funds.


II. Monthly Payments:

School families who choose the ten (10) or twelve (12) month payment plan and miss a monthly payment due to insufficient funds will be assessed a missed payment fee by FACTS or e~Funds and may incur a fee from their own financial institution. The missed payment will be reattempted by FACTS or e~Funds two additional times before it is turned over to FVL for collection. A missed payment fee is charged by FACTS or e~Funds for each attempt.

In addition, school families who have missed two monthly payments will receive a certified letter of communication. If they have not made suitable arrangements within fourteen (14) calendar days of the second missed payment will be informed that their child(ren) will not be allowed to participate in any co-curricular activities. Students will be permitted to complete academic course requirements, take mid-term exams and final exams. Progress reports and report cards (Quarter, Semester, and End-of-Year) and permanent records will not be released. These consequences will be in effect until the family’s account is current or a suitable arrangement has been made with the FVL Business Office. After 3 months of delinquency and no communication with the FVL Business Office and approval by the Board of Regents, the parent/guardian may be asked to withdraw their child(ren) from FVL.


III. Quarterly or Semi-Annual Payments:

School families who choose a quarterly or semi-annual payment plan and miss an automatic payment due to insufficient funds will be assessed a missed payment fee by e~Funds and may incur a fee from their own financial institution. A missed payment fee is charged by FACTS or e~Funds for each attempt.

In addition, school families who are 60 days late will receive a certified letter of communication. If they have not made suitable arrangements within fourteen (14) calendar days of the missed payment will be informed that their child(ren) will not be allowed to participate in co-curricular activities. Students will be permitted to complete academic course requirements, take mid-term exams and final exams. Progress reports and report cards (Quarter, Semester, and End-of-Year) and permanent records will not be released. These consequences will be in effect until the family’s account is current or a suitable arrangement has been made with the FVL Business Office. After 90 days of delinquency and no communication with the FVL Business Office and approval by the Board of Regents, the parent/guardian may be asked to withdraw their child(ren) from FVL.


IV. Payments with a Credit Card:

Families can choose to pay part or all of their tuition with a credit card via e~Funds. A convenience fee of 2.75%, plus $0.30 per transaction, of the total charged will be assessed with each credit card transaction. School families who choose to pay with a Credit Card via e~Funds and miss a monthly payment due to insufficient funds will be assessed a missed payment fee by e~Funds and may incur a fee from their own financial institution. The missed payment will be reattempted by e~Funds two additional times before it is turned over to FVL for collection. A missed payment fee by e~Funds is charged for each attempt.

In addition, school families who are 60 days late on payment will receive a certified letter of communication. If they have not made suitable arrangements within fourteen (14) calendar days of the missed payment will be informed that their child(ren) will not be allowed to participate in co-curricular activities. Students will be permitted to complete academic course requirements, take mid-term exams and final exams. Progress reports and report cards (Quarter, Semester, and End-of-Year) and permanent records will not be released. These consequences will be in effect until the family’s account is current or a suitable arrangement has been made with the FVL Business Office. After 90 days of delinquency and no communication with the FVL Business Office and approval by the Board of Regents, the parent/guardian may be asked to withdraw their child(ren) from FVL.


Tuition balances are to be paid in full by May 20 of each year. Any tuition balance outstanding on May 20 will be assessed a 3% service fee.

Fox Valley Lutheran High School reserves the right to collect outstanding and/or past due tuition by other legal means as deemed necessary by the FVL President in consultation with the FVL Finance Committee and the FVL Board of Regents. A serious and charitable effort will be made by the FVL Business Office to collect tuition before any legal process is pursued.


NON-ADMISSION OF STUDENTS DUE TO TUITION DELINQUENCY

School families failing to pay tuition according to the agreement which they have made with FVL or who have been unwilling to make suitable alternative arrangements will be informed that their child(ren) may not be readmitted.

All families must be current in their payment of tuition:

  • By August 15: If not, students may not be admitted on the first day of school.
  • By May 20: If not, seniors may not be allowed to graduate on stage. Students will be permitted to complete academic course requirements and take final exams. Report Cards and permanent records will not be released.

 


DELINQUENT TUITION/OUTSTANDING BALANCES FROM PREVIOUS YEAR(S)

All previously unpaid tuition and other outstanding balances must be paid by August 1 if a student is to be readmitted on the first day of class for a new school year. Payments can be made directly to FVL or via FACTS or e~Funds. If payment is not possible, suitable arrangements must be made with the FVL Business Office. Any tuition balance outstanding on May 20 will be assessed a 3% service fee.

 


SPLIT TUITION BILLS

In the event that a divorced or separated family would like to split their tuition bill, FVL will accommodate and establish multiple tuition accounts. With multiple tuition accounts, an equal number of SCRIP accounts will be established, with SCRIP proceeds adjusted accordingly. Each tuition account will be treated individually, subject to its own tuition assistance award and its own payment plan. In the event that one parent is not meeting their tuition payment obligation, FVL will treat the situation just as any other delinquent tuition account as stated above, including SCRIP proceeds, school fees and/or fines, or any other amount owed to FVL for any reason. In addition, unless a payment plan is implemented to pay the outstanding balance in full, the child(ren) may not be readmitted to school as per this policy.
