Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act


The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) protects the privacy of individual students by placing certain restrictions on the disclosure of information contained in University records. 

In order for the Student Account Services and University Billing Office to release billing information to any third party (including parents), a student must first grant permission. Two options are available for students' convenience: 


You may authorize an individual access to your electronic billing account by clicking the Authorize Payer link in QuikPAY and following the prompts. Individuals authorized to access electronic billing information and receive monthly billing statements may also inquire with Student Account Services and University Billing staff about their students' accounts. 

It is a student's responsibility to delete the user account for any individual they no longer wish to authorize access for. 

Note: when authorized payers establish a QuikPAY Payment Plan on behalf of their student(s), their authorized payer account may not be deleted for 30 days following completion of the agreement term. 

For the steps to create or maintain an Authorized Payer account in QuikPAY, follow this link: 

Authorization to Release Information Passcode 

Through CentralLink, you may now set up an Authorization to Release Information Passcode. Once established, you may give your Student ID and passcode to any individual that you would like to have permission to speak with members of our team. 

To set a passcode, follow this link: 

Set/Change Authorization to Release Information Passcode

Follow the prompts to choose a passcode and expiration date. It is the student's responsibility to maintain and/or change this passcode if they no longer wish for an individual to have permission to inquire about their account. 

Individuals must provide both the student ID and associated passcode to be authorized to receive information.
