    *When making an online payment, the system will require a minimum payment of $5.00 (maximum $500.00). If you have multiple students and only want to make a payment to one student, then leave other amounts blank.


    A processing fee will be charged for the Total Credit Card payment transaction. For example, if you make a $20.00 payment to one student and a $25.00 payment to another student in the same transaction, the processing fee for the total payment is $2.00. The processing fee will be shown prior to processing your transaction.
