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 LINQ Connect

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 LINQ Connect.
