BVC Zelle at co-opcommittee@brazosvalleyco-op.com

We recommend you set up and test Zelle through your banking app before April 29th to avoid a delay in your registration.

Check the list of FULL CLASSES carefully before registering. All fees are non-refundable, so be sure there is space available before you send the $200 registration fee. NOTE: We do recommend you register for a class even if it is not your first choice because as a registered family, you will be able to register first next year.

Pre-Registration

Please read the Pre-Registration tutorial then follow the steps carefully so your registration will not be delayed.

After these pre-registration steps are complete, you will be emailed a link to register your students for classes.

ALL BVC MEMBERS MUST SIGN THEIR AGREEMENT WITH OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH. PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY BEFORE JOINING BRAZOS VALLEY CO-OP:

  • We believe the Holy Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of man, and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
  • We believe in one infinite, true God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Having lived without sin, He truly died and was resurrected in His own body for our atonement and resurrection.
  • We believe that only through His death, by the shedding of His blood, and His resurrection are we provided justification and salvation.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of all mankind; for the believer to an everlasting dwelling with God, for the unbeliever to an everlasting, conscious hell without God.
  • We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.
  • We believe that God created mankind in His image: male (man) and female (woman).  We believe God has ordained and created marriage to exist between one man and one woman, with absolute marital fidelity. The Bible sets forth specific home and family values, which include the distinct roles of husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, and children. It is our firm conviction that we uphold the dignity of each individual as we embrace the unchanging and long standing principles of scriptural truth.
  • We believe in the imminent, bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Students promoting or participating in lifestyles, choices, or habits contrary to the BVC statement of faith will be dismissed. This applies to all students whether this conduct occurs inside or outside of co-op hours.  

Open, Full, Nearly Full, and Closed Classes

Wait lists will be maintained for full classes.

Why use Zelle?

Zelle® is a peer-to-peer (P2P) money transfer app that allows users to move funds from one bank account to another. More than 1,700 banks include Zelle® on their website or within their mobile banking application. Unlike many money transfer apps such as Venmo, PayPal, and Cash App, Zelle does not charge an extra fee for sending or receiving payments, and there is no need to transfer funds, as they are immediately deposited into the bank account. Zelle is also far more secure than other popular P2P payment platforms.

Although Zelle is perfect for our use, it does have some idiosyncrasies which you need to understand. We have attempted to simplify these explanations in the most concise way. You can always contact your local bank (or ask us) if you have further questions.

  • The easiest way to access Zelle is through your bank’s website or mobile app. NOTE: some banks offer Zelle features through the website and app. Some banks only offer Zelle through the mobile app. Banks differ in this approach, so you will need to find out the details on your bank’s website.
  • Regarding the BVC fee payment: your bank must offer Zelle in order to pay BVC using this platform. Because BVC has an EIN number, it must be classified as a business account with our bank and with Zelle. Zelle business accounts only accept payments through your bank’s app with Zelle. If your bank does not offer Zelle, you will have to pay the fee with a check through the mail.
  • BUT… if your bank does not offer Zelle, you can still download the ZELLE APP (different from when your bank offers Zelle, and you use your bank app) and input your debit card number. With the Zelle app, you can pay anyone who prefers to receive payments this way. Unfortunately, this does not work with a small business Zelle account. This option is for a peer to peer payment to a person whose bank has Zelle.
  • Many of the teachers now prefer Zelle. If your bank offers Zelle, utilize the bank app to pay teachers. If your bank does not offer Zelle, use the Zelle app to pay the teacher through your debit card.
  • Now, to make it more confusing… a person whose bank does not offer Zelle cannot pay another person who does not have Zelle, even using the Zelle app. At least one of the parties must use a bank that offers Zelle.

Let’s try it in some example scenarios between Jane and Joe:

  • Jane’s bank offers Zelle.
  • Joe’s bank does not offer Zelle.
  • Jane can use her bank’s app to pay the BVC registration fee with Zelle.
  • Joe cannot use Zelle to pay his fee because BVC is utilizing a Zelle small business account. Joe will mail us his fee to our new PO Box.
  • Jane can pay her child’s teachers using Zelle through her bank’s app.
  • Joe can also pay his child’s teachers using Zelle by downloading the Zelle app and inputing his debit card number.
  • Jane and Joe can exchange funds through Zelle because one of their banks is a Zelle partner.
  • Now meet Beth. Her bank does not offer Zelle.
  • Jane can pay her friend, Beth, through her bank’s Zelle app to Beth’s Zelle app, even though Beth’s bank does not offer Zelle.
  • Joe and Beth cannot exchange funds through Zelle because neither of their banks offer Zelle.
