FACTS Payment Plans and Financial Aid Needs Assessment are now conveniently located on the same platform.

The FACTS process will save paper and time for our families and administration. It provides a secure and convenient payment option for our families.
Each family will have the choice to make their tuition payment in full or continue online to set up a pre-scheduled tuition payment plan after completing the application process. This is not a loan program, so no debt is incurred and no credit check is conducted. The school is offering the following payment options:
- Payment in full can be made through FACTS secure online payment site.
- Two-pay by automatic payment from your bank account (ACH). One half of the tuition must be paid by December, with the remaining payment due by April.
- 10 or 11-month payment plan by automatic payment from your bank account (a monthly ACH payment June or July through April).
- 10 or 11-month payment plan by automatic credit card charge (a monthly payment, plus a 2.85% convenience fee, June or July through April).
Families who enroll after June 5th will be advised by the business office as to: 1) any tuition that must be paid directly to the school at time of enrollment; and 2) how the remainder of the annual tuition amount will be distributed by month.
Upon acceptance of your enrollment, you will establish your tuition payment agreement from the options provided through FACTS. Once your agreement is posted to the FACTS system and PCA enters the tuition amount due, you will receive a confirmation notification of your payment amount by email or letter. You must do this in order to complete the enrollment of your student. Payments will be processed until the total balance is paid in full. If you do not have Internet access, contact the Tuition Office in order to make arrangements to use school facilities for your FACTS registration.
ACH payments are the payments you authorize FACTS to process directly through your bank or financial institution. They are simply bank-to-bank transfers of funds that you have preapproved either from your checking or savings account.
No. Banking regulations strictly control the automatic payment process. The same standards enforced on banks are used for this system. Neither FACTS nor the school will have direct access to or any knowledge about the status of your bank account. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you authorize when you register with FACTS.
For more information regarding the security of data collected by FACTS, please refer to the parent/student section HERE.
When you register with FACTS, you may specify either the 5th, 10th, 20th, or the last day of the month for your tuition payments.
FACTS will issue an NSF reminder notice to you and another attempt to withdraw the payment will be made. If further attempts are unsuccessful, after approximately 10 days, a $30 return payment fee will be charged by FACTS. Your bank may also charge an NSF fee for every failed attempt to make the automatic payment. If the account becomes delinquent, PCA will dismiss your student from classes until the past due amount is settled.
As always, PCA will continue to work with families should special circumstances or “hardship” cases arise during the school year. Always contact the Tuition Coordinator (734-459-3505 ext. 3190) whenever you anticipate that a payment will be missed.
The school’s tuition and payment policies essentially remain the same. Your student’s account must remain current at all times. If the account becomes delinquent, the student may not be allowed to attend classes; or grades, transcripts and records may be withheld until the amount owed is settled.
The payment plans offered under the FACTS Tuition Service do not alter any financial aid and discounts that may be awarded and used to reduce your tuition bill. Any reductions awarded or modified during the year will be adjusted with FACTS by the school.
Yes. Families who pay the entire year’s tuition in advance will receive a tuition discount. This amount is detailed in the current year tuition schedule.

Yes. You and the school have access to your FACTS account at any time.
Yes. There is a 2.85% convenience fee (2.85% of the payment amount) that will be added to each credit card payment.
