Parent/guest access

Students may grant access to one or more parents or guests to view select information or make a payment on the student’s account. Some common examples for this access is to allow the parent/guest to:

  • View the student account and billing statement
  • Make a payment
  • View grades (via the unofficial transcript)
  • View financial aid
  • View class schedule

Other than the ability to make a payment, parent/guest access is "view only". Your preferred name will appear to parents and/or guests if you grant them access to information on your student record. Your primary/legal name may also appear (more information is available). 

Once established, parents/guests access their student's information through MyU.

You can grant access to your parent or guest through the My Info tab of MyU (see step-by-step instructions). You may also revoke access any time, without notice to the parent or guest. While access is granted, designee(s) will have the ability to view released information online.

You have the following options to release information. 

Student Information Release Authorization, academic and/or financial  records - Grant access to academic and/or financial records to a parent or guest.

Student Information Release Authorization, academic advising records - Grant access to your academic advising records only, to a parent or guest for one calendar year.

Student Health and Counseling Services Information Release Authorization - Contact  UMD Health Services at  (218) 726-8155 for guidance.

When your student grants you access to their information, you will receive an email notification. You will need to follow the instructions in the email to complete the process (see step-by-step instructions).

Once established, you will access your student's information through MyU. You may find the following “How To Guides” helpful:
