Clever for applications

Pricing for application partners

Find the right plan for you to easily scale your software in classrooms across the country. On average, Clever’s application partners can expect Secure Sync rostering to cost less than $.04 per student, per month. 

Our business model—free for schools

Schools do not pay to roster software through Clever. Instead, applications purchase Clever’s technology, so they can focus on core business needs instead of dedicating time to complex district setups. With a Clever integration, applications avoid building and maintaining custom integrations for every district—freeing up resources and streamlining operations.

And Clever’s single sign-on solution is free for everyone. Applications can build a free integration via Clever Instant Login, and there’s no cost for districts using the Clever Portal.
