School enrollment fees are used to automatically assess certain fees when a student enrolls in school, such as Enrollment, Uniform, etc. When creating school enrollment fees, you can indicate whether you want the fee to be proratable.
Though school enrollment fees defined at the district level might be expected to be applied to any school, they are not. Such fees remain on the Edit School page because they are associated with a selected school. Learn more from the PowerSchool Community article titled School Enrollment Fees Not Assessed When Students Are Enrolled.
When importing students, school enrollment fees are not automatically assessed. You must manually assess school enrollment fees using Fee Functions.
Manage School Enrollment Fees
On the start page, choose District under Setup in the main menu.
Under District Information, click Schools/School Info.
Click the name of a school.
In the School Enrollment Fees section, click New.
Choose the Fee Type. Only those fee types with the fee category of School appear.
Choose the department with which you want to associate the fee.
Enter the amount of the fee to be assessed.
Enter the date the fee becomes applicable.
Select Proratable to indicate that the fee is to be assessed based on the number of school days in the year. If a student enrolls in school after the start date or withdraws from school before the end date, the student will only be charged for that portion of the school year.
