Financial Information 2018–2019
Immaculata High School is a parish school, not a diocesan, nor private school. Its financial security depends on the timely and full payment of all tuition and the enthusiastic generous support of our Advancement Office and fundraising efforts. Alumni support and benefactors are also vital to the financial stability of our school. The diocese provides a small financial subsidy on an annual basis; but, apart from this, Immaculata receives no financial aid.
Business Office/Tuition Collection Policy
All tuition must be paid as contracted either by FACTS or in full. All tuition payable through FACTS, both 2-pay plan of ½ in July ½ in December and the 10-month plan from July–April are due on the 5th or 20th of the month. BOTH PLANS start in JULY. The full (ONE-TIME) payment is due by July 15. (A $100 discount will be given for all payments received by July 15.)

Returned Check Policy
Many people experience an occasional bookkeeping error or cash flow mis-step; this is understandable. Anyone whose check has been returned for non-payment, should immediately notify the Business Office (908) 722-0200 Ext. 113. We will ask that you replace the check plus cover the bank fees we incur. We discourage the issuance of bad checks as it costs the school time and resources to follow up. Please pay with cash, money order or bank check if you are uncertain as to your checking account balance. Your cooperation is appreciated.
Non-payment of Tuition or Fees
Failure to pay tuition in full by the end of April may lead to forfeiture of a seat for underclassmen and tuition assistance for the next school year. Failure to pay tuition or fees will lead to suspension of PowerSchool, withholding of transcripts, and roster classes for the following school year. Students whose balance is not current will be deemed ineligible for on-campus parking privileges. Failure by a senior to pay tuition in full by the end of April will prevent that student from participation in any senior activities, such as; the Senior Prom, Boat trip and from graduation exercises. Final transcript and diploma will not be sent.
Communication with the Business office is paramount. Please help us to help you in fulfilling your financial commitment to Immaculata.
Should a student withdraw prior to the end of school, a 2 month tuition retention will be due. For example, if the student leaves in the middle of November, the tuition should be paid through January. (November plus two month retention.)
