Count Classes by Student or Family for the Multi-Class Discount (By Class Fee)

When calculating Multi-Class discounts during tuition billing for classes with the Billing Method By Class Fee, you have the option of using student level discounting or family level discounting.

  • At the student level, Jackrabbit counts each student's classes separately and applies the discounts.
  • At the family level, Jackrabbit adds all the class tuition, for all students, and applies the discount to the total.

This setting to change between student and family counting is located on the  Discount Rules for Classes Billed by Tuition Fee page accessed from Manage Your Discount Rules in Tools > Edit Settings > Tuition Settings.
