Assign an Authorized User Access to Make Payments

This setup allows parents and other authorized users to make payments to student accounts. The student must create an Authorized User ID before the parent or other authorized user can access the information.

Note: Access granted by a student to an authorized user through the Parent Center is based on the student's consent for that user to view specific online information and is not equivalent to a third-party release of information covered by the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Students must complete a FERPA 3rd Party Release form to allow the university to discuss items covered by FERPA with an authorized user.

  1. Click the Treasurer's Office tile from the Student homepage.
  2. Click Make a Payment.
  3. Click the Add New link in the Authorized User Access box at the bottom of the page.
