Smart Tuition is used by my children's high school to manage tuition payments and financial aid applications. It addresses the business challenge of providing parents and school staff a way to manage charges, payments, and communication.
  • Website is easy to navigate
  • Customer service is very professional and helpful
  • Multiple options for making payments and setting up accounts
  • I have been happy with Smart Tuition and have not had any issues.
Smart Tuition is a good platform for schools that want to incorporate the financial aid application process and billing together. Parent use is easy to navigate, and it reduces the time spent by school staff to manage accounts. In a school where the financial aid application process is not done by a third party, Smart Tuition may not be the option they are looking to implement.
  • Excellent tracking of accounts for the school
  • Customer service interacts with the parents' questions
  • One system for the school staff to manage
I use FACTS in my role at work, and my children's school uses Smart Tuition. I am more familiar with Smart Tuition as a parent, but it seems to be a good solution for the high school. Since we do the financial aid in-house at my school of employment, FACTS works better for us.
