What is the Campus Card?
It is a prepaid account using a modern touch-screen point-of-sale solution (POS) to support food sales on campus and a web portal which allows parents to preorder lunches and access their student’s account 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at www.myschoolaccount.com (MSA).
Myschoolaccount.com allows parents to:
Convenient and Informative for Parents
Parents can make online payments with a check or bank card at their convenience – anytime, anywhere.
Safe and Easy for Students
The prepaid account updates nightly to reconcile internet deposits and on-campus purchases. Parents can see that the deposit has been made to the account in real-time. It takes up to 24 hours for purchases to appear online.
The purchase history feature gives the parents the ability to view what their children have been eating at their school’s cafeteria. This feature allows up to 30 days worth of transactional data to be displayed on the MSA website, www.myschoolaccount.com.
There are fees associated with each transaction that are paid by parents; a transaction is defined as a payment online. Funding fees are a flat fee of $2.00 for e-checks (ACH) and 6% for bank cards; in order to minimize expenses, we recommend that parents load larger amounts less often using e-checks (ACH) and reserve bank card loads for emergencies.
