Authorized Users

Set Up an Authorized User

In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), your student financial records may not be shared with a third party without your written consent. Adding an authorized user is your written consent that an individual (a parent, employer, etc.) may view your account information and make payments on your behalf.

With the authorization process, you can give users access to:  

  • Make payments to your account
  • View account activity
  • View billing statements

Users DO NOT have access to your stored payment methods, academic records or other personal information. Users have their own username and passwords.

Adding Authorized Users

  1. From your RowdyPay student homepage, click Authorized Users in the My Profile Setup box.
  2. Click the Add Authorized User
  3. Enter the email address of the authorized user you would like to add and answer the account viewing option questions. This email address will be the authorized user’s login name.
  4. Your user will receive an email from TouchNet on how to complete the registration.
  5. Authorized users have their own username and passwords.
  6. Students may have multiple authorized users on their account.
  7. You may remove access to your account at any time through the Authorized Users

Store Online Payment Profiles

No more typing in account numbers and bank information each time you or an authorized user wants to make a payment. With RowdyPay, you can save and nickname your payment options, e.g., “Mom’s checking” or “My AMEX.”
