During the semester, up to date account activity and balances can be viewed and paid online.
Parents and others may view account activity, balances and make online payments if their student has set them up as an Authorized User. To set up an Authorized User, the student will need to:
- Log in to their Online-billing account,
- Click on the “Make a payment” button,
- When the home screen appears, click on “Authorized Users” at the top right and follow the instructions.
The newly Authorized User will then receive emails with instructions which will take them to the student account where balances, account activity can be viewed, and payments can be made.
