Posting Other Fees (Non-Tuition)

Most of the fees you post in Jackrabbit will be for class tuition fees. In addition, there will be other fees you will need to charge your families. 

It's important to consider and answer these questions before you make decisions on when and how to post fees that are not tuition related:

  • Registration Fees - Do you charge a fee when a new family signs up and is added to Jackrabbit? Do you charge a registration fee for returning students when they register for new classes? Are those fees charged per family, per student, or per student for each class?

  • Annual Fees - Is there a membership, insurance, or annual fee for students? Does the annual fee cover the entire family or does the fee depend on the number of students enrolled in a family?

  • Late Fees - Unfortunately, this can be a common occurrence and student accounts may not be paid in a timely manner. Will you be charging a late fee? What is the charge on a late balance? Is there a flat late fee per student per class or does the fee adjust depending on the delinquent amount?

  • Miscellaneous (Misc) Fees - This is a catch-all category for other fees your organization charges. This could be for merchandise, recitals, registration for swim meets, etc. Are these miscellaneous fees taxable? Are these fees related to a specific event?

  • Class Transactions - Are there fees related to specific classes in your organization? Maybe you have fees for recitals and those fees vary by class levels?

  • Post Other Fees - Do you have additional fees you would like to post to specific families?
