Set up Recurring Payments for Fees

Using recurring payments, you can pay installments for a fee or pay for recurring services from the district.

Before you can set up a Recurring Payment for an Optional Fee, you must first make a payment on the optional fee. After you make your first payment, Campus assigns the optional fee to the student and the fee displays in the student's list of fees.  After you make a payment and Campus assigns the fee to the student, you can use the Recurring Payments tool to schedule a recurring payment for that fee.
