Charge tuition for a course

If you want, you can charge an enrollment fee for a course. The fee will go through Educadium's CampusPay system so you only need to set up your course as tuition-based.

Note that if you have the Custom Tuition Payment Add-On, you can collect tuition immediately.

Before You Begin

  • Determine how much tuition you want to charge for the course.
  • Display your campus landing page (the first page you see when you login).


  • On the landing page of your campus, click the change settings link next to the name of the course you want to change. The Edit Course Settings page will display.

Change Settings

Note: If you do not see this link, you may have changed the default layout. You can access the Settings page by clicking the Settings link in the Administration block of the course itself. If you can’t find this block, you can add it temporarily to any course page by selecting it from the Add Block dropdown.

  • Scroll down to the Enrollments area (approximately halfway down the screen).
  • In the Enrollment Plugins drop down box, select the PayPal option.
  • At the bottom of the form, click the Save Changes button. You will be taken into the course.

The next step is to enter the enrollment cost. The item for this is also located on the Settings page but DOES NOT display until you've selected PayPal and saved the settings.

  • Use the breadcrumbs to return to the landing page and then click the change settings link again.
  • Scroll down to the Availability section. In the Cost box, enter the tuition fee you want to charge. If necessary, you can change the currency type.

Cost field
  • At the bottom of the form, click the Save Changes button. You will return to the Administer My Course Screen. Students who click the name of the course will be advised that they must pay tuition and taken through the steps to do so. This only occurs once and thereafter, the students will be able to click directly into the course.

If you are using CampusPay (default) please contact your Account Manager to help you set up options such as billing percentages and receipt of payment. If you do not have an Account Manager, contact
