How to Pay School Fees
If you have outstanding school fees, you may do the following:
Create a Parent Account
To create a new account, go to cbe.ab.ca/mycbe.
Parent/Guardians will need to use the email on file at their child’s school, as well as their child’s CBE Student ID number and birth date.
The MyCBE sign-in page contains instructions on requesting an access key for students. The access key(s) will be sent by email. Families can use it to create an account, and add their children to their account.
You can also sign up for services like transportation or lunch supervision, pay fees and view or print receipts and statements for all of your children in one, central location. The system is mobile-friendly and works with your smartphone or tablet.

No child is ever denied access to an education in the CBE because of an inability to pay. The CBE has a waiver process for families who can’t afford to pay the fees. Visit our
Waivers& page for more information and the documents required as proof of income or extraordinary circumstance.
Any family needing a waiver is encouraged to apply to the City of Calgary Fair Entry Program to prove income for a CBE waiver, as well as access other benefits of the program. This is optional for families and the CBE will continue to accept other approved documents as proof of income.
Note | Waiver applications are available through your MyCBE account.
Students Assigned to Calgary Transit
For students using Calgary Transit, families will need to purchase monthly bus passes available at many convenience and grocery stores.
All families can apply for the City of Calgary's Fair Entry Program for the low income Calgary Transit pass. This program offers a streamlined application process for City subsidy programs, including reduced rates for transit passes. You can find more information about the program atwww.calgary.ca/fairentry.
