Once a student has logged into the Student Account Center in student portal, they may grant parents or a designated family member access through the Manage Account Access tab. The parent would then receive an email on their private email from TMS/Nelnet (who we have partnered with) that they have been granted access.

If you have applied for financial aid and received a financial aid award letter, the amount of financial aid will be in a pending status on the bill.
