Payment Plan Options

To help manage your expenses and plan a payment schedule that fits your needs, the annual educational cost can be paid via one of the following options through Tuition Management Systems (“TMS”).  These options are currently available, but may be subject to change.

A.  One Annual Payment: One automatic payment of the total annual cost due on or before July 20, 2016 .  If paying by direct debit to your checking or savings account, you will received a one percent (1%) discount on the net tuition and fees, which will be applied as a refund to your tuition account once the payment is remitted to Gilmour by TMS.  Payments made by debit or credit card will not receive this discount and will be subject to a 2.75% service fee.  All payments on this plan will be made directly to TMS and require registration with TMS.  There is no processing fee for the registration.

Families who initially elect the one annual payment option and choose to switch to the monthly payment option must do so prior to the start of the school year.  The annual cost or any remaining balance after prior payments will be evenly divided over the remaining months of the TMS program, not to exceed the final due date of February 20, 2017.  A late fee of $35 will be applied each month that the full account balance is not paid.

B.  Monthly Payment Plan: Gilmour Academy offers a monthly payment program administered through TMS allowing families to spread their payments over an extended period of time.  A $60 processing fee is assessed and incorporated into the amount of the monthly tuition payment.  The program begins with the first automatic draw on May 20, 2016 and concludes with the final draw on February 20, 2017.  The monthly payment will be debited from your designated account (checking, savings, or credit card) on the 20 th of each month.  All payment accounts are required to be set up for automatic payment through TMS Automatic Payment Option ("APO").  Use of a debit or credit card account will result in a 2.75% service fee.  Failed payments may be assessed a fee by TMS as well as your financial institution.  Gilmour will also assess a $35 late fee.

Enrollment Deposit

Admitted students who wish to enroll at Gilmour Academy will be required to submit a fully executed and signed Enrollment Agreement and the required nonrefundable registration deposit ($1,500 for day students and $2,500 for resident and international students) directly to Gilmour.  The deposit will be credited toward the annual tuition and fees and applied to your billing statements in July 2016.  If you have further questions, please contact the Admission Office at (440) 473-8050.
