TUITION COLLECTION
TUITION PAYMENT(S)

Tuition is paid annually on an 11-month payment plan beginning in the month of August and ending in May/June. Tuition is paid through FACTS (a tuition-management company based in New Jersey). Tuition is paid through automatic withdrawal from either a checking or savings account. 

  • Tuition may be paid in full or financed through FACTS on an 11-month payment plan with the first payment due on August 5th or 20th, 2022, and the last payment due on May 5th, 2023. (Note: Payments on the 20th of the month will continue throughout the year on that date except for June, which will be withdrawn by FACTS on June 5th, 2023).

Please Note: FACTS charges a one-time set-up fee of $45.00 each school year. Parents will be notified in advance of the payment due date.  

All financial obligations to Maria Regina School must be completed by May 30th, 2022. Any family still in delinquency may not register for the new school year until all financial obligations have been met. Once the account has been brought to current, the child(ren) may be placed on a waiting list.  Seats may not be held for returning families still in delinquency.  

Anyone wishing to close their FACTS account must notify the office in advance. An additional fee of $45.00 will be added to any account closed before notifying the school office. 


  • Family that qualifies can only be granted one form of assistance.

IMPORTANT REMINDER:
  
All financial obligations are due and payable on/or before May 30th, 2023. A $40.00 late fee will be charged to each outstanding financial obligation and that will be applied to ALL categories. 

If there is a balance owing on your account at the end of the sc​hool year, your child or children will not be allowed to return to school in the fall and any monies owed will be reported to the credit bureau. 


LATE FEES

Tuition payments are due each month. A late fee of $40.00 will be charged for any payment received after the due date, including non-tuition related fees (fundraising, etc.). An additional late fee of $40.00 will also be charged (along with any late fees charged by FACTS) for each late payment attempted by FACTS as a result of insufficient funds. A processing fee of $45.00 will be charged if your FACTS account is closed without notifying the school office in advance.
