Can I register more than one student ?

SCO users can have up to 8 students added to their SCO account. All 8 students can be in attendance at any district school board regardless of country or province.  
 
Each student can only be attached to 5 SCO users at any given time.  
 
Each time that you "Add" a student to your SCO account you will have an opportunity to select the appropriate district school board and school for each individual student. 
 
Due to the fact that a parent or guardian may have multiple students in attendance at different school boards, SCO accounts are not linked with an individual school board. 
 
Similarly, due to the fact that a parent or guardian may have multiple students, each SCO account can accommodate the addition of up to 8 students. 


Do I need to re-register a student that moves to a different school within the same school district ?

School Cash Online records are constantly updated so if a student moves to a different school within the same district, the student’s information will be automatically updated.

Do I need to re-register a student that moves to a different school district?

If your student's new school is also part of a new/different school board, you may need to re-add the student to your SCO account and affiliate them with he correct DSB. This is due to the fact that your student's identifying information (such as their sate / provincially assigned student number) may change when they change districts.


If the school that your student attends needs to be updated, it is the school and the District School Board (DSB) who will need to update this information on their end. Accordingly, the first step in order to proceed is to ensure that the school and the district have updated their records.


When a student changes school boards, they may remain attached to their old school board. If this occurs, the SCO user can unsubscribe from the student and then re-add the the student to their SCO account by affiliating the student with the new DSB.

Why did my student disappear from my SCO account ?

There are two instances wherein a student may disappear from a user's account  :



1) A student may temporarily disappear from a user's account when the District School Board updates their Student Information System (SIS).

If this is the case, the student should be visible again as soon as the DSB has completed the updates.



2) It is possible for a student to be accidentally removed from the DSB's Student Information System (SIS).



If your student disappears from your SCO account please advise the applicable school of the situation so that they can confirm if the disappearance is due to SIS updates or check their SIS to ensure that the student has not been accidentally removed.

What is myWallet?

MyWallet is an optional online wallet that allows SCO users to store funds for future use. Loading funds into your myWallet account is not mandatory. Users can choose the payment method that best suits their needs.


How to load and store funds using myWallet

MyWallet - How To Load & Store Funds Using MyWallet


Step 1

Go to your School Cash Online (SCO) Account 


Enter in the unique URL for your school district's School Cash Online website.

Example: XXXXXXXX.schoolcashonline.com


Note: MyWallet funds are district specific so it is very important to ensure you are using the correct URL when loading funds.


 

This URL would also be used for public items


Step 2

Click Sign In at top right of the login page




Step 3

Once you have successfully logged-in to your SCO account, please select the My Wallet tab. Then select the option Add Funds



Step 4

On the add funds page you will be required to enter in the amount of funds that you would like to deposit into your myWallet account and press Continue.



Tip: Please note that each school district has a myWallet load limit. Dependent upon the district, this limit ranges from 200.00-500.00 with a max total balance between 500.00 and 1000.00


 

Step 5

You have now been redirected to the "Select Payment Method" page where you will use the eCheck payment method to load funds from your chequing or savings account into your myWallet account.

eCheck authorizes a payment from the user’s chequing or savings account. To pay with eCheck you will be required to input your bank's institution number (3 digits), the transit or branch number (5 digits) and the bank account number (between 7 and 12 digits). 


Tip: Although your funds are available for immediate use it may take 2-5 business days for the bank to process your payment and the funds to be withdrawn from your account.

Note: School districts Niagara Public, Central Okanagan, and Halton Public will allow credit as a method of payment for MyWallet.



Step 8

Please enter your banking information.

Tip: If you need help finding your banking information, your financial institution's help line will be able to provide it for you. Oftentimes, your financial institution will have their help line's contact number listed on the back of your bank card/debit card 

Error Message: "Bank Transit Number does not belong to the Bank for the given Institution Number" (depicted below), please call your financial institution to confirm that you have the correct information on file. If the error message persists after you have confirmed your banking information then it is likely that the transit number for your branch has yet to be added into our database. If you believe that your transit number needs to be added to our data base then please call 1-866-961-1803 to request that it be added.


 

Step 9

Please read & print the authorization statement & provide your authorization by checking off the  box. Then please select Continue.

 


Step 10

Please confirm your billing address & then select Continue.


 

Step 11

You will be redirected to a page depicting a review of your myWallet deposit request. To finalize the transaction please select “Complete Your Transaction”.


Congratulations! You have successfully completed your eCheck payment for your myWallet load.



Additional Information: 

        When you deposit funds into the myWallet account, it will take 1-5 business days for the myWallet load transaction to be processed by your banking institution. Although the transfer of funds from your bank account into your myWallet account is not immediate, your “Payment History” tab will immediately display "Success" in the “Status” column beside “myWallet Add Funds”. This is to indicate that your "Payment Attempt" was successful but it is not yet an indication of the fact that the funds have been transferred. These funds these funds are immediately available to allocate towards item purchases. If the myWallet load fails, (due to incorrect banking information entry and / or insufficient funds) the status displayed in the “Payment History” tab will change to "Exception". Accordingly, any purchases that are made using myWallet funds which are subsequently found to be irretrievable from your bank account will undergo a change in "Status" and be listed in your “Payment History” with an "Exception" in the "Status" column. 

The “Exception” status always indicates that the transaction was not successful. If you see an “Exception” status, then you will need to re-load your myWallet account and re-purchase any items for which the initial payment attempt failed.

Tip: Please note that each school district has a myWallet load limit. Dependent upon the district, this limit ranges from 200.00-500.00 with a max total balance between 500.00 and 1000.00



Step 6

Please fill in the "Amount to Add" field by entering in the dollar amount that you would like to deposit into your myWallet account. Then select Continue.




Step 7

You have now been redirected to the "Select Payment Method" page where you will use the eCheck payment method to load funds from your chequing or savings account into your myWallet account.

eCheck authorizes a payment from the user’s chequing or savings account. To pay with eCheck you will be required to input your bank's institution number (3 digits), the transit or branch number (5 digits) and the bank account number (between 7 and 12 digits).



Tip: Although your funds are available for immediate use it may take 2-5 business days for the bank to process your payment and the funds to be withdrawn from your account.

Note: School districts Niagara Public, Central Okanagan, and Halton Public will allow credit as a method of payment for MyWallet.



Step 8

Please enter your banking information.

Tip: If you need help finding your banking information, your financial institution's help line will be able to provide it for you. Oftentimes, your financial institution will have their help line's contact number listed on the back of your bank card/debit card 

Error Message: "Bank Transit Number does not belong to the Bank for the given Institution Number" (depicted below), please call your financial institution to confirm that you have the correct information on file. If the error message persists after you have confirmed your banking information then it is likely that the transit number for your branch has yet to be added into our database. If you believe that your transit number needs to be added to our data base then please call 1-866-961-1803 to request that it be added.



 

Step 9

Please read & print the authorization statement & provide your authorization by checking off the  box. Then please select Continue.



Step 10

Please confirm your billing address & then select Continue.



 

Step 11

You will be redirected to a page depicting a review of your myWallet deposit request. To finalize the transaction please select “Complete Your Transaction”.




Congratulations! You have successfully completed your eCheck payment for your myWallet load. 



Additional Information: 

        When you deposit funds into the myWallet account, it will take 1-5 business days for the myWallet load transaction to be processed by your banking institution. Although the transfer of funds from your bank account into your myWallet account is not immediate, your “Payment History” tab will immediately display "Success" in the “Status” column beside “myWallet Add Funds”. This is to indicate that your "Payment Attempt" was successful but it is not yet an indication of the fact that the funds have been transferred. These funds these funds are immediately available to allocate towards item purchases. If the myWallet load fails, (due to incorrect banking information entry and / or insufficient funds) the status displayed in the “Payment History” tab will change to "Exception". Accordingly, any purchases that are made using myWallet funds which are subsequently found to be irretrievable from your bank account will undergo a change in "Status" and be listed in your “Payment History” with an "Exception" in the "Status" column. 

The “Exception” status always indicates that the transaction was not successful. If you see an “Exception” status, then you will need to re-load your myWallet account and re-purchase any items for which the initial payment attempt failed.

How long does it take to add funds to a myWallet account ?

Funds are available immediately for you to make purchases for your child. Please note that you still need to purchase the item(s) or fee(s) after loading funds to your myWallet account. Add your item(s) or fee(s) to the shopping cart, select the checkout option and select myWallet as the payment method to make your purchase.  
 
Note: While funds are immediately available for use in School Cash Online after a successful myWallet load, it can take up to 1 to 5 business days to confirm if the money for myWallet load was received successfully. 


How can I make a Payment Using MyWallet ?

MyWallet is an optional account for storing funds. Loading funds into the myWallet account is not a necessary step when making a purchase on School Cash Online (SCO).

A myWallet deposit does not constitute a payment for an item. Funds are deposited into myWallet and reserved to be allocated towards future purchases.


The Benefits of Using MyWallet

  • By reserving funds in your myWallet you avoid having to enter your payment information for each individual purchase. 
  • MyWallet makes it easy and secure for students to log on to their parent's SCO accounts and make item purchases without requiring access to a credit card or banking information.
  • The funds that you place in your myWallet account never expire and there are no hidden fees or deductions associated with myWallet.
  • Funds reserved in myWallet can be refunded back to the bank account from which the funds were initially deposited. 


To purchase an item using myWallet please follow the steps detailed below:


Step 1 

Go to your School Cash Online - Example: https://[yourdistrict].schoolcashonline.com
