St. Ignatius College Preparatory San Francisco's Jesuit school since 1855

MySchoolBucks payment processing


What is MySchoolBucks:

SI utilizes a computerized Point of Sale (POS) system to assist us in increasing the level of service we provide, as well as to allow parents to have easier and better reporting on how student funds are being spent.  This system can be used throughout campus — in the Commons, Bookstore, Prep Shop and any other venue where students wish to purchase something.

How to access MySchoolBucks:

Every student at SI has been entered into the computerized system.  We strongly recommend parents/guardians deposit money into the student’s account via Go to this website and click on "Sign up today" to get started. You will be prompted to select a state; then under "select district" you will see St. Ignatius in the dropdown menu.

After you have created your account, you can search for your student's by name and birthdate or by their student ID number, which is on their student ID card. (New students: You will be able to sign up in mid-August.)

How to fund MySchoolBucks account:

On the Myschoolbucks website, you can use a credit or debit card or your bank's routing number located on one of your checks. If you use this method, there will be a charge of $2.49 for deposits up to $300.  To avoid the fee during the regular school year, you can drop off a check to the Business Office made out to St. Ignatius with your student's name and ID written on the memo line.

If a student’s account gets low, an email will be sent by Myschoolbucks alerting you of this.  Money in the student’s account at the end of the school year will be carried over to the next school year. (See Refund policy below for more information)

How the payment system works:

Starting in Fall 2020, we will scan the barcode on the student's ID card.  This will ensure a contact free payment. Students should have their ID cards out and ready for scanning when making a purchase. (We will not be using the Biometrics/fingerscan that we've used in prior years.)

Refund policy (effective 8/23/19)

When your student graduates or leaves SI for any reason, for balances over $10 you will have the option to get a refund, transfer to another SI student, or make a donation to SI's Annual Fund. Balances less than $10 are automatically allocated to SI's Annual Fund as a donation. For questions, please contact Kerryn Schwarz ( x5257.
