Third Party Access

Third Party Access allows students to give access to their account to another person, typically to parents. There are two different Third Party Access systems that allow access to different types of information:

  • Third Party Access for Student and Financial Aid information allows you access to Admissions Forms, Student Schedule, Student Records and Grades, Tax Information, and Financial Aid Forms and Letters.
  • Third Party Access with Nelnet allows you to access e-bills, make e-payments, setup a payment plan, and print a remittance advice in order to mail payments.
Please review the additional information below for each system:
