Tuition & Billing
Flexible bookkeeping makes dollars and sense.
Automated Pay Plans
Gradelink’s tuition and billing section gives you the flexibility to create payment plans for students/families to pay down tuition and other fees in installments.
Create different pay plan schedules and rates for students. Charges appear in the ledger when you close your billing cycle to save you from manual entry. Print a statement for parents showing payments received and new charges at the end of each month.
Automated Lunch Billing
If your teachers take a lunch count, you can sync it with the student ledger so any appropriate lunch fees are automatically charged to the student’s account. You can incorporate regular rate, reduced rate, and free lunches as well.
Control when charges are posted to the student ledger or allow parents to make payments ahead of time. Run a lunch billing report to view lunch billing information exclusively. Also, track lunch payments received. Yummy!
Multiple Tuition Rates
Track reduced-rate tuition with ease. Gradelink allows you to charge variable rates, as well as credit student accounts when they receive scholarships or funding. Configure as many different transaction rates as you would like.
We are now able to receive payments online, which has been hugely helpful! We have also been able to track after school fees, hot lunch fees, attendance, and the list goes on!

Stay on Top of Your Budget
The Account Balances report allows you to view transaction totals within customizable billing categories so you can view how much money has been charged and collected school-wide.
View school-wide tuition totals, lunch transactions, and much more. Use this report to create your school budget and project next year’s financial information.
