Making Online Payments

Instructions for Online Payments

In order to facilitate ease of payment of school funds, St Kevin’s Community College uses an online payment system. This means that you can pay voluntary contributions and other school expenses through our secure online system by credit or debit card, keep track of payments paid and print off a receipt.

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we can only accept payment of voluntary contributions and other payments to the main office by cheque/credit/debit card payments, by appointment.

To set up your online payment account:

  1. The recommended browser is Google Chrome
    2. Go to the school webpage
    3. Click Online Payments – MIT at top right of screen (if using a smartphone, click the 3 white lines on the blue square at top right to get this option).
    4. On the MIT screen select Parents Login.
    5. For your first time to login for this child select CREATE ACCOUNT
    6. Enter your child’s first name, surname and PPS number. If you have any difficulties at this stage please phone the school office for assistance (01-6266277).
    7. Click NEXT.
    8. You will be asked to enter an email address and password. Keep a secure record of these as this is what you will use to login in the future.
    9. Please inform the school office by email or phone if you notice an error in your details. Click ‘Take payment’ and enter details of your payment as instructed on the screen. If you have any difficulties at this stage, please phone the school office.

If you cannot use the online system, please phone us for assistance. Please support our efforts to reduce the amount of cash and cheques we deal with in the school office and to make our payment system more efficient.

Thank you for your contribution.













Please note that our school uniform is now available from Topstore, Ballyfermot. It’s important to get in there ASAP as sizes you need may sell out. This is especially important for girls starting first year.
