All tuition, picture, and trip payments are to be paid through the bursar which is located in A-205.  Before making a trip to the Bursar, please make sure to pick up a Child Development Center payment form in the center's reception area which you will need to give the bursar when making a payment.  Bring the pink portion of the form to the center after payment is made.  If we do not receive the pink portion of the form, we will not know that you have made a payment.
