Automatic Drafting (ACH) FAQ

WHAT ARE ACH PAYMENTS?

ACH Payments are a free service offered by Abner Montessori / Sky After School whereby your regular tuition payment is electronically withdrawn from your checking account and applied to your Abner Montessori / Sky After School account. Your payment is automatically withdrawn on your regular billing date. If your billing date falls on a weekend or holiday, the payment is withdrawn on the next business day. No more writing checks, buying stamps or worrying about mail delays!


WILL I STILL RECEIVE A BILLING STATEMENT?

Yes, you will receive a billing statement for the full term of your tuition contract. Once you have been enrolled in the ACH program, your statement will reflect that your payment is being made automatically.


WHAT IF I CHANGE BANKS?

If you change banks after enrolling in the ACH service, please contact us and let us know and fill out a new ACH form.


WHAT HAPPENS IF AN ACH PAYMENT IS REJECTED?
