Acorn via MyStudent (Student Fees) Set-Up Steps
Interested in paying for things such as students fees and field trips online in the comfort of your own home with a credit card? Then follow the steps below to get started. By setting up an account in MyStudent, you will be ahead of the game for your child’s middle and high school years, as this program becomes fully functional in 6th grade.
Acorn is a secure, streamlined system (replacing SchoolPay) and enables parents to add school purchases to their shopping cart for multiple children at different schools, and complete transactions through the use of a credit card. This does NOT include lunch payments.
Step 1: Set up a MyStudent Parent Account
*In order to use Acorn (see Step 2) you need to give the system 24 hours to link your MyStudent account to the Acorn system*
Step 2: Student Fees/Acorn (24 hours after initial set up in MyStudent)
- Go to https://www.studentquickpay.com/pasco/
- In the blue Parent Account Activation box, select “Continue”
- Enter the email address associated with your myStudent account and select “send email”
- This will generate an email that prompts you to activate your account
- Open your email and click the link
- Continue by creating your password and activating your account
- Once this is completed, you can view fees and items that can be purchased
Please note, this will NOT change the process for putting funds on your student’s meal account. In order to do so you will still go through MySchool Bucks.
Step 3: Ready to Use
