Why do students need to be verified?

This is done to ensure that a POS account exists for this student and that the correct student gets credit for the payments.


Add New Students

  • Enter the student’s ID number in the Student Number text field.

  • Enter the student’s last name or the first three characters of the last name in the Last Name text field.

    • Student Number and the first three characters of the student's Last Name must match the school records exactly.

    • The Student Number digit length is determined by your district



Why do we require an exact match on last name and student number?

For security, we require that the parent provide at least these two pieces of information.

Then the verify feature can be used to fill in the first name and school. This makes the registration process easier if parents are not sure exactly how their child's first name is spelled in the school records, while still providing confidentiality.

  • If a match is found, two messages will momentarily appear on the top of the page. It will be verified immediately and the account will be ready to accept payments.
