View Financial Aid Information

The Parent/Family Authorization option allows a student to authorize access to view certain student information. This authorization provides access to the designee (parent or another third party) to view financial, academic, and directory information.

Please note: The access granted to you through the Parent Center is based on your student's consent for you to view specific on-line information and is not equivalent to a third-party release of information covered by the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Your student must complete a FERPA 3rd Party Release form that allows the University to discuss items covered by FERPA with you.
