Granting access to a parent or guardian

Students may grant parents or legal guardians access to their account using the Parent Access section of the My Profile page. Access may be granted to anyone with a Directory ID.

If a parent or guardian does not have a Directory ID, he or she can create and activate an Associate Account, for which a personal email address will be the Directory ID. Once the account is authorized, the parent or guardian can log in to the Office of the Registrar.

  1. Log in to Testudo and click on your name to bring up the My Profile link.
    Your name is located near the top right of the screen, clicking it brings up the My Profile link
  2. Find the Parent Access section of the page and enter the Directory ID of the account to which you are granting access (Associate Account Directory ID's are full email addresses). Click on Grant.

    Parent Access is near the bottom left
  3. The authorized account will appear in a table in the Parent Access section, displaying an expiration date, current status, and action buttons to Remove or Renew access. You may grant access to additional accounts as well. You must renew access at least once a year or you will need to reauthorize access for the account.
