Third party billing is a feature that can be used if someone other than the primary or secondary contact is making payments towards the student's tuition billing. This functionality is helpful if grandparents or trusts are making payments. The third party payer will receive  emailed invoices, which will include all the payment information. This will ensure that payments are applied to the correct account.
Keep in mind that the person listed as a third party payer will not be provided with any account information if they contact the parent support center.

  1. Go to school.smarttuition.com > enter your school ID > click on the applicable school year
