When you use Post Tuition Fees, you can have a family specific discount applied to any tuition fees posted. This is often used for volunteers, staff, etc. that are given a discount over and above any multi-class and multi-student discounts that you offer.
The Family Discount, which can be a dollar amount or a percentage, is applied to the tuition amount after your other discounts have been calculated and applied as per the class Tuition Defaults. Note: Family Discounts are an option if you use Class Based Billing.
To add a Family Discount:
- In the Family record select the Billing Info tab.
- Enter a discount in the Family Discount field (the discount can be an amount or a percentage).
- Select the Discount Type (Amount or Percentage).
- Assign an Exp Date (optional).
- Add a Note (optional).
- Save Changes
Important Notes About the Family Discount
- Family Discounts are not deducted from Family Fixed Fees.
- Family Discounts are deducted from Student Fixed Fees. The discount is posted after all Student Fixed Fees are entered. Example: A family has two students and both students have a Fixed Fee of $100. The Family Discount is $10.00. Both Student Fixed Fees are posted at $100 each. The discount of $10 is subtracted from the total ($100 + $100 -$10=$190).
- You can set the Family Discount to expire on a specified date. After an expiration date has passed, the discount will be ignored when posting tuition fees.
