At present we do not collect a credit card processing fee.

Given the low tuition fee, we are unable to cover the card fee. If we could cover the fee, then we need to raise tuition rates to compensate. This seems unfair to those families who choose other modes of payment such as checks, money order, or cash. We, therefore in the future may need to pass the credit card fee.
