Watch a (2:41) video tutorial on how to Set Up Discount Rules for Classes Billed By Class Fee
Do you want to offer a discount incentive to students who take more than one class, or a discount to families with more than one student enrolled at the same time? Jackrabbit makes it simple to accommodate these scenarios.
Tuition Discount Rules define multi-class and multi-student discounts (or a combination of both!) for classes that are billed By Class Fee. These rules are assigned to classes on the Summary tab of the Class record. Once a rule is assigned to a class, the class will use that rule's discounts when posting your tuition fees, based on your Tuition Fee Settings.
All classes are automatically assigned a Discount Rule of No Discounts on the Summary tab of the Class record.
Once you have created your Tuition Discount Rules in your Tuition Settings (Tools menu > Edit Settings) they are assigned to each class that you bill By Class Fee, in the Class record on the Summary tab.
Add a Discount Rule
Assign Discount Rule to Classes
Each class can only have one Tuition Discount Rule, however, you can assign different rules to different sets of classes. For example, you may offer recreation classes that are eligible for discounting (using a Tuition Discount Rule that you create) at the same time as having competitive Team classes that do not count towards discounting (using the No Discounts rule).
To assign rules to many classes at once, use the Edit All Classes tool from the Classes menu.
Family Discount Rules
There may be times when you don't want the Discount Rules for a class to be applied to a specific family. Perhaps you have some families who are Team or Competition and their student's classes are discounted at a different rate than the rules assigned to their classes are defined as.
When you find that the assigned class Discount Rules aren't applicable to a particular family, create a Family Discount Rule and save it to the family's Billing Info tab. The Family Discount Rule will over-ride all class assigned rules for this family. Learn more about Family Discount Rules.
