Payment Plans: 2018-2019

Payment plans are available to anyone who wants them. The terms of the payment plan are outlined on this page. Families who want a payment plan should request it in their Meridian Athletics Registration Form, and by doing so, they agree to the Payment Plan Terms and Payment Plan Schedule as outlined here. Those families will automatically be set up for a payment plan for all sports in which they participate that school year.
 
Terms:
Please note that it is the parent's responsibility to pay according to this Payment Plan Schedule below. Simply login to your MySchoolBucks account and make the next payment on your invoice according to this Payment Plan Schedule below. You will not necessarily be reminded by the Business Office or Athletics Department when you have a payment due. Please add the appropriate schedules to your personal calendar to keep your Payment Plan payments up-to-date.
 
Once a payment is 10 days late, a $25 late fee will be added to the outstanding invoice and the student will lose financial eligibility, meaning he/she will be unable to participate in the sport, until the outstanding scheduled payment plus the $25 late fee has been paid. Parents must email Meridian-athletics@mwschool.org once they have made a late payment in order to facilitate their student athlete's financial eligibility status being restored.
 
Please note that all Meridian School invoices that are 10 or more days past due will place the student on a Financial Obligations list that could restrict that student's opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities and events until the outstanding balances are resolved. This includes but is not limited to Meridian Athletics invoices and sports offered through Meridian Athletics.
