As instructors, we have all had to deal with the awkward conversation when a student does not bring their tuition to class. There are numerous billing and processing software platforms available. One of the easiest programs I've used is Stripe. The fees are fairly standard across the board (3.5% of credit/debit card transactions) as of this writing, but what I like most is being able to set up automatic billing. That alleviates the awkward interactions when a student shows up to class without their tuition as you never have to chase them down for payment. Below, I'll detail the steps to getting your automatic billing set up.
