I have an annual tuition total that some parents pay in one installment, some in two, and some in 10 monthly payments. This past year, we set it up as a pledge that parents worked towards with contributions on a contribution page, but as I set up for next year I think it might be more effectively tracked through CiviMember, perhaps with price-sets? I would also like to be able to use the CiviDiscount extension in the tuition payments, and have some way of allowing parents to contribute to a scholarship fund on the same page.

Does CiviMember allow payments on an installment plan? Does CiviDiscount work with the above answer? What setup would you recommend for this use case?
