A Financial Agreement Process is a way for you to set up rules for your school’s tuition. This will allow you to set fees and discounts. Then the system can calculate what a family owes based on the defined parameters. Setting up your financial rules is a permissions based task. If you do not see some of the options discussed then you may need to contact another admin for your school and ensure you have the proper permissions set. If you have ANY questions at all, please reach out to [email protected] for assistance.
You must have your Accounts and Categories already set before you will be able to successfully create rules for your Financial Agreement Process.
If you would like to create fees or discounts based on User or Family information, you will need to ensure that the information is held within the User/Family Info Form. For example: if you would like to offer a discount for military or staff members. You’ll need to have a field within the User/Family Info Form that designates whether they are military/staff/etc.
We recommend entering all of your rules before handling individual agreements. You will be able to manually edit an individual agreement after it has been calculated. However once an agreement has been manually edited or “finalized” it will no longer auto calculate based on the rules.
After creating all of the Financial Agreement Process rules, you will then need to publish User Agreements for your families.
