How parents may register and use online services at TuitionExpress.com to make payments online, check their balance, sign up for email notifications, etc.

Is TuitionExpress.com free?

Yes. All services are free to parents and guardians whose child care provider uses TuitionExpress.com. Some services, such as the ability to make online payments, or use a credit card, are at the discretion of your provider and may or may not be available.

Do I need to complete an Authorization Form?

It depends on how payments will be made:

  • If your child care provider will be collecting automatic payments from your bank account or credit card you must complete an authorization form available from your provider or you may Download a Payment Authorization Form and return it to your provider.
  • If you are making online payments only (your child care provider will not be automatically collecting any payments) then no authorization form is needed.

ID Number, Bank Account or Registration Number

You’ll need two numbers to register the very first time at TuitionExpress.com.

  1. The first number is your unique Tuition Express ID number which will be given to you by your child care provider.
  2. The second number depends on how payments will be made:
    1. If your provider will be collecting automatic payments you’ll need the last 4 digits of the bank account (or credit card number) from which you have agreed to pay your provider.
    2. If you are making online payments only (your child care provider will not be automatically collecting any payments) then you must GIVE YOUR PROVIDER the 4 DIGIT REGISTRATION NUMBER you want to use – just for the purpose of getting registered.
