Frequently Asked Questions

Tuition

I would like to pay my tuition by check and I don't see that option in the parent portal


Beth Rivkah no longer accepts payment in the form of a private check (unless it is coming directly from your employer). If you do send in checks, we will use the routing number and account number to take a direct payment instead of cashing the check. For your convenience, you can also enter this information as an ACH option.




I would like to pay tuition via my employer. How do I set this up?


You must first select a payment plan and enter your prefered method of payment on the parent portal. This will serve as a secondary form of payment in the event that your employer fails to make payments on your behalf. In addition, click here to inform us of your intention to establish direct payment from your employer to Beth Rivkah so that we avoid charging your account. Click here to submit your information. Please understand that you are responsible to cover your daughter's tuition, and must be in contact with Beth Rivkah’s registration office should any issue or change arise with your payment arrangement.
