    Helpful Hints

    If you are new to the online payment center, you will need to create a new account. You will need:

    • Your student's identification number.  This can be found on your student's bus pass, or on middle/high school class schedules.  You may also contact the school office to ask for your student's PowerSchool ID number.
    • A personal email account to receive confirmations after payments have been processed as well as to set up low balance notifications.
    • A valid credit or debit card, even if you register just to monitor your student's account. 


    Processing Fees Charged by K12 Payment Center

    A processing fee for each online transaction is assessed at the time of transaction. This transaction fee does not go to to Cabarrus County Schools. This is a convenience fee charged by K12 Payment Center. It is a variable fee based on the payment amount. For payments up to $95, the convenience fee is $1.95. For payments over $95, the fee is 3.99%. Additionally, customers have the option of using electronic checks for a fee of $.95 regardless of the payment amount.
