POLICY OF NON-DISCRIMINATION

The Fulton School at St. Albans admits students of any race, color, nationality or ethnic origin to the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students of the school.

PAYMENT AND ADDITIONAL FEES

  1. Payments may be made by ACH automatic payment, cash, check or money order. Please make checks payable to The Fulton School at St. Albans.
  2. A $30 service fee will be charged for the handling of each check or ACH that is returned to the school due to insufficient funds or other reasons.
  3. All accounts are subject to a 1.5% monthly service fee when payments are more than 10 days past due.  In addition to these service fees, annual payments are subject to a one-time $300 surcharge if the payment is more than 10 days past due; semester payments are subject to a $150 surcharge for each payment that is more than 10 days past due.
  4. Semi-annual payments reflect a 1.5% surcharge; 9 monthly installments reflect a 3% surcharge; 12 monthly installments reflect a 4.5% surcharge. When opting for 12 monthly payments, 1st payment must be received by June 15 to continue the 12-month option. 

Payment Policies

The level of tuition and fees, as well as payment and collections policies, are established by the Finance Committee of the Board and implemented through the Business Office.

Tuition invoices are e-mailed on the 1st of each month, beginning June 1, with payment due by the 15th.  Finance charges are assessed when payment is 10 days past due.  All payments and finance charges currently due must be received by TFS before a student begins classes in August, or returns after the winter and/or spring breaks, unless specific alternative written arrangements have been made in advance with the Business Office. All payments received will be applied to the oldest portion of the debt. Please note, if enrollment begins after school has already started, tuition will be due for the quarter enrolled, through the balance of the school year. 

Outstanding Invoice Policies 

When a tuition payment is 30 days past due (or the 15th of the next month) a Statement will be e-mailed showing the current amount due, including the assessed finance charges.

When a tuition payment is 60 days past due (or the 15th of the second month) an official written notice will be mailed and e-mailed, outlining past due amounts with instructions to contact the Business Office immediately.  Once an account becomes 60 days past due, additional billable services, i.e. after hours, shuttle bus, etc., will not be provided until payment arrangements are made.  The Finance Committee of the Board will also be notified.

When a tuition payment is 90 days past due (or the 15th of the third month) and no contact has been made (as instructed by the 60-day notice), we will regretfully be forced to notify the family that the student is immediately un-enrolled and will not be allowed to return to school.  At this time, the account will be turned over to our attorney who will become the official contact for the account in seeking the outstanding and remaining tuition due, per the signed enrollment contract.

All accounts are subject to a 1.5% monthly service fee when payments are more than 10 days past due.  In addition to these service fees, annual payments are subject to a one-time $300 surcharge if the payment is more than 10 days past due and semi-annual payments are subject to a $150 surcharge for each payment that is more than 10 days past due.

Automatic Withdrawal Payment is available and encouraged for all families (see Debit Entry Authorization Form).  Families awarded Tuition Assistance or Merit Scholarships will be required to enroll in the Automatic Withdrawal Payment Plan. 

Automatic withdrawal payments made on the 15th will reflect the amount of the invoice e-mailed on the 1st of the month.  If there are questions regarding the invoice, notification must be made to the Business Office by the 10th of the month or the original amount will be withdrawn.

Accounts shown to have insufficient funds will result in a $30 charge, and families will be required to provide a cashier’s check in person by the 25th of the month.  If the account is insufficient multiple times, The Finance Committee of the Board will also be notified.

Transcripts will not be released until all payments have been made in full.
