The deadline for tuition payment is approaching (July 15), but my family's having trouble understanding the Tuition Management System (TMS), our school's (Lawrenceville) medium of paying tuition.
I assume that the TMS has something to do with afford.com. However, are we supposed to sign up our own account there? Then what EXACTLY would we need to do? Does TMS have its own bank account to which we could transfer our payment?
Also, our chosen method is the first payment plan, which is "due July 15 and covers 60% of tuition and 100% of the medical and technology fees and tuition refund insurance premium. The balance is due December 15." We're confused because there's no explicit reference to TMS regarding this plan.
I would really appreciate it if any current Lawrenceville parents/students, or anyone who has had experience with TMS, could guide us through this system.
Thanks in advance!
