Jackrabbit gives you an option to create Fixed Fees to use when the tuition fee assigned to a class is not appropriate for a family or a specific student. These situations are considered unique or unusual and Fixed Fees should only be used under specific circumstances.
You may offer an 'unlimited' tuition rate for students who take a large number of classes or hours of class. Save a Fixed Fee (on the family Billing Info tab or the student Summary tab) to force Jackrabbit to enter this fixed fee amount whenever tuition is posted using Post Tuition Fees. Regardless of what your Tuition Settings are, Jackrabbit will override them and post the Fixed Fee.
There are two types of fixed fees:
- Family Fixed Fees - Created specifically for an individual family.
- Student Fixed Fees - Created for an individual student.
When used, a Fixed Fee overrides the process of calculating tuition fees for each class, and instead posts a Tuition Fee transaction to the family's account.
