Parents preauthorize their bank or credit card company to automatically transfer funds to Gilman on the installment payment dates traditional to the School. Preauthorized automated payments can be done conveniently from one's checking or savings account, or by way of Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express. 

When a student is accepted to Gilman, the student's parent(s) and/or guardian(s) will be asked to confirm the acceptance and forward a deposit. The deposit is non-refundable and will be credited to the tuition bill.
