Setting up an Authorized Payer step-by-step

Student records are private under federal law. Without your authorization, college staff cannot share or discuss your billing information with anyone but you.

To permit the college to send electronic bills to your Authorized Payer (usually a parent or guardian), you will need to add them to your account. (The college does not send paper statements.) 

You can add as many Authorized Payers as you need. If you do not want to set up an Authorized Payer, you will need to contact Student Accounts to note that in your records.

This step does not require any banking information. 

Screenshots also are available as a PDF file.
