Any payment received 5 or more days after the designated due date will incur a $40 late fee.

*Enrollment in Smart Tuition is required of all students unless prior approval is obtained from MISD. If you have extenuating circumstances which prevent you from making payments via Smart Tuition, please contact Student Services Coordinator, Amy Rhodes (amy@misdami.org), to discuss your situation. Students who do not enroll in Smart Tuition and who choose Payment Plan C (monthly payments) will incur a $100 Administrative Fee.

Discount Policy for Schools
The following discounts apply to schools who pay MISD directly for a student’s entire tuition:

For schools sponsoring two or more students attending MISD programs starting in 2021, tuition is discounted by 5% for each student, beginning with the 2nd student. The discount is applied to the students with the lowest tuition. In order for a school to claim its discount, send an email to Fernando Castillo fernando@misdami.org with the names of the students the school is sponsoring, and the programs they are attending, by June 1, 2021.

Hiring an MISD graduate was a perfect fit for our school.  I am impressed with her deep knowledge and understanding of the materials…”
