Enrollment contracts, if used effectively, can set the standard and tone for the relationship between the school, the student and their parents, and can be the school’s best ally when the relationship goes sour.  Schools can use this document for more than establishing the commitment to pay tuition. In this session, we will discuss effective contract drafting to ensure compliance with applicable laws, and review strategies and considerations in drafting and issuing enrollment contracts, including those which arise with "perpetual" or "evergreen" contracts, use of electronic enrollment agreements, credit card swipe fees, and the Truth in Lending Act.
