Tuition Payment

 

Tuition Fees

 

Payment is due on the 1st of each month. Late payments will be charged an extra fee of 10% of monthly payment. Families who miss one tuition payment will become delinquent in their accounts and will be given a deadline to make these payments in full. Failure to meet this deadline will result in immediate suspension from RDNC until payments are made.

RDNC strives to keep our tuition costs affordable.  Pursuing and processing late payments are detrimental to our resources and takes away from our programming.  We ask all families to be responsible and submit tuition on time (inquire about our convenient auto-pay options).

If your family is unable to pay the current monthly tuition or feel your monthly rate does not reflect your current financial situation, please contact us.  We work with families!

 

Please see fee schedule below:

 

Alamo & Argonne families pay according to the sliding scale of $75/month, $150/month, $225/month, or $300/month.

 Tuition Criteria:

Your enrollment fees were assessed based on our 2017-2018 fee reduction schedule and the financial information you submitted to us with your child’s application. If you qualify for our sliding tuition scale, please email a copy of your 2016 1040 tax form to registration@rdnc.org.

On May 3rd, SFUSD distributed letters (attached) informing families of the loss of 21st Century federal funding for its ExCEL funded after school programs.  SFUSD has now tasked all community based organizations with creating a co-payment fee structure.  It will go into effect for school year 2017-2018.

In order to maintain high quality programming, RDNC ES programs will implement an application fee for all students.  This one-time annual fee with allow RDNC to continue to run elementary after school programs without raising monthly tuition rates.  We are asking all families to make the application fee payment when you receive notification of acceptance into our program.
