Tuition Payment Options

Kimball Union Academy offers three tuition payment options to provide families with flexibility in managing their administrative activities and cash flow requirements.

Tuition Payment Options

Tuition payments at Kimball Union Academy include both a nonrefundable deposit and the remaining tuition balance. The nonrefundable 10% deposit is due upon enrollment each spring. The payment of this deposit is paid directly to Kimball Union Academy.

The balance of tuition and other school fees are paid to Smart Tuition. This is not a loan program; therefore, you are not incurring additional debt. There are no interest or finance charges assessed for payments made on time, and there is no credit check.

Kimball Union Academy offers three payment alternatives through Smart Tuition:
  • Plan A - One Payment to Smart Tuition by June 30. Tuition insurance is optional.
  • Plan B - Two Payments to Smart Tuition by June 30 and October 15. Tuition insurance is required.
  • Plan C - Ten Monthly Payments to Smart Tuition May 15 through February 15. Tuition insurance is required.  There is a $70 annual administration fee for this plan.
KUA utilizes Smart Tuition for the processing and collection of our families’ tuition.  With Smart Tuition, you can select a payment method that works best for you, whether it is receiving invoices, making automatic debit payments, using a credit card, or paying Smart Tuition online.  You can access your account from the parent portal of KUA’s website to edit your profile, check your tuition balance, make payments, review account history, change your method of payment, and live chat for assistance.
Smart Tuition’s staff is available 24/7, 365 days a year to answer questions about your KUA account.

KUA offers a tuition refund program that protects parents’ investment in the unlikely event a student must withdraw from KUA for one of several reasons including, accident or sickness, family relocation, family financial reversal, academic failure or a disciplinary matter. KUA recommends that all families purchase Tuition Refund Insurance; Tuition Refund Insurance is required when a family selects payment option B or C above.
