The University provides online portals by which a University student may grant a third-party access to his or her records. Detailed instructions follow for students and parents on these processes, including tutorials below on how students grant access and how parents can access your parent/guest portal accounts. 

Information that is protected from disclosure pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), such as grades, financial aid details, and student account and billing information that is maintained in a secure online environment. A student may grant permission to a parent or guest to access to some or all of this information via two portals:

  • To view grades, financial aid, schedule details, holds, contact information, and to call with questions (including those about billing) – students must grant access via this Parent/Guest Portal .     
  • To view charges and pay bills online – students must also grant access to the new WVU MyAccount Portal.

Due to the protection of students’ rights under FERPA, a student may restrict the information that a parent or guest is able to access and revoke access at any time. For FERPA updates and more information, please visit:
