Recurring (Direct Debit) Payments

Parents / Guardians have the option to pay fees by direct debit from their bank account or by credit card. A merchant fee of 0.8% will apply to payments made using Visa and MasterCard and a 1.0% merchant fee will apply to payments made using AMEX Cards. Payment will be spread over 10 months commencing in February and ceasing in November in the year of the student's tuition. The payments will cover the fee instalments due in January, April, July and October of the academic year.

Important - to be eligible to take up the option, any outstanding account balance from the current academic year must be paid in full by 23 December. To assist with this requirement, we send all families a statement so that outstanding balances can be identified.

Please refer to the Direct Debit Service Agreement for general conditions. Other amounts such as the device levy, Scotch Parents' membership fee, uniform shop charges, music fees and the like will need to be paid separately at the commencement of each term when charged on the fee statement. Alternatively, you may choose to pay a higher instalment amount to cover the anticipated additional charges. In the event of a default, all outstanding amounts will immediately become due and payable and a dishonour fee will be charged to your fee account.

Please complete the Direct Debit Request prior to Monday, 9 January 2023.

If you have any questions about payment options for your child at Scotch College please refer to the Fee instalment Calculation Schedule provided by the College (see below), or contact our Accounts team on +61 8 9383 6946 or fees@scotch.wa.edu.au.
