METHODS OF PAYMENT

When it comes to paying fees, there are three main ways the school accepts payment. This guide will help make sure they are quickly credited to your account.

While fees can be paid by direct deposit, check, or cash, we prefer to receive payment by direct deposit or cheque/check for security reasons. Here are instructions on how to make payments:

Either online or in-person at an ATM or Siam Commercial Bank branch, you can transfer funds directly to our account. If you go to an SCB branch, simply fill in a deposit slip with our details. For local transfers, our bank details are:

Bank: Siam Commercial Bank

Account name: Grace International School

Account number: 401-1-69229-2

Branch: Big C Hang Dong Sub Branch

SWIFT Code: SICOTHBK

Bank address: 433/4 Moo 7, A. Muang, Chiang Mai 50000, Thailand

Kindly note that the last two lines are needed only for a transfer from outside Thailand.

** Once you have made your payment, please email the details (amount, date, and what for) to finance@gisthailand.org. This is very important; otherwise we cannot identify your deposit and it will not be credited to your account.

Baht Checks
If you write a check, or get a bank check, please make it payable to Grace International School, and mail or deliver the check to us. If you mail the check, please ensure that you tell us your name and what you are paying for. Ex. “Jane Smith—tuition & cap fee”.

U.S. Dollar Check or EFT
U.S. checks can be mailed to our AdelFi account or processed via electronic funds transfer (EFT) from your U.S. bank.

The current day’s exchange rate (Daily Rate, “Weighted-average Interbank Exchange Rate”) less 0.5 should be used to account for fluctuations between the time the check is mailed and when it clears. If today’s exchange rate is 31.02, divide the baht due by 30.52 to find the amount to pay in U.S. dollars (Ex.: 50,000 divided by 30.52 = $1,638).

Please use the following information to mail your U.S. dollar check or set up an EFT:

Bank: AdelFi

Account name: Grace International School

Account number: 1356988

Routing number: 3222-7337-9

Bank address:

P.O. Box 1239

Brea, CA 92822-1239

USA

** Once you have made your payment, please email the details (amount, date, and what for) to finance@gisthailand.org. This is very important. Otherwise we cannot identify your deposit and it will not be credited to your account.

The finance office now accepts credit card payments (3% will be added to cover the fees associated with this service).

If you choose to bring in cash baht, visit the school and meet with the cashier to make your payment. If you have any questions, please write to the finance office at finance@gisthailand.org

OTHER HELPFUL INFORMATION

Financial Assistance Program (FAP)

Grace International School (GIS) exists primarily to enable international Christian workers to remain in their field of service by providing their children with a high-quality education at an affordable cost. GIS has a long history of helping the children of international Christian workers attend GIS at discounted tuition rates. While the costs of running the school require that those who can afford to pay must do so, school leadership also provides further assistance to some students through the Financial Assistance Program (FAP).

DELINQUENT ACCOUNTS​

The CFO will request parents with overdue accounts to negotiate suitable payment arrangements so that their children can continue attending school. Unless suitable payment arrangements are made with the chief financial officer, a 1% penalty on the amount past due may be assessed. This penalty will continue to be assessed each month until the account is brought up to date.

REFUNDS​

Only tuition fees are refundable. Other school fees are non-refundable. Attendance during any part of a quarter requires payment for the entire quarter. It is the responsibility of the parents to apply for a tuition refund at the Registrar’s Office. Refunds of tuition fees that are not claimed within three (3) months of withdrawal from Grace International School are no longer refundable and become the property of the school.

LATE FEES​

Accounts will be automatically assessed 1.5% interest per month (prorated by day) on all past-due tuition and fees according to the payment schedule on the invoice. If there is a problem meeting payment deadlines, please contact the chief financial officer (CFO) at finance@gisthailand.org before the due date to discuss the situation and sign a formal Late Payment Agreement.

MULTIPLE CHILD DISCOUNT​

Tuition is assessed at the full applicable rate for the first three children enrolled. Each additional sibling will receive a 20% discount on tuition only.

STUDENT VISA​​

To obtain a student visa, the Capitalization Fee and tuition must be paid in full for the entire year.
