Authorized Users and Parental Tax Access

Authorized Users

The Authorized User system is the website used by students to set up accounts for people whom they would like to grant access to their financial information and to make payments. This system allows the student's primary login information (user ID and password) to be safe and secure, while allowing a parent or guardian to have access to all of the financial information that they need.

StudentsHere are instructions for students on how to create an Authorized User account. Keep in mind that only the student can create Authorized User accounts. 

Parents and Guardians: Visit this website to reset your password if it isn't working (click on link that says "e-mailed" underneath "Forgot your password?"). 

Authorized User accounts do not grant access to 1098T tax forms. For access to those, you will need to use a Tax Access account (see below).

Parental Tax Access

The Parental Tax Access system is used to give parents and guardians access to the 1098T tax form. As with Authorized User accounts, a Tax Access account must be set up by the student and only students can reset passwords for these accounts. 

Tax Access accounts cannot be used to pay bills. Only Authorized User accounts are able to make payments to student accounts (see above).
