It’s easy to set up:
- Delegated Access is a lot like Parent/Third-Party Access. A student still registers a parent/third-party (delegate), giving him or her access to categories of information.
- After a student registers a delegate, that individual receives an email containing step-by-step instructions for activating delegated access.
- Delegated Access allows a student to select categories of information that a third party can view, and if necessary, on which that third party can perform transactions.
- If the student selects it, a delegate can now access financial aid information in addition to all of the items that were previously accessible.
- Delegated Access offers increased security.
- IMPORTANT! A student assigns the delegate a PIN code. The student is responsible for remembering and communicating the PIN code to the delegate.
- The PIN is used by GC staff for identity verification in the event a delegate contacts the university regarding a student’s information.
- This verification system provides even greater security for student information.
It facilitates communication:
- Finally, the new Delegated Access enhances communication-between a delegate and the student(s), and university staff and delegates.
- The page view a delegate sees and the page view a student sees are virtually the same. This allows the student to walk a delegate through the user interface, helping everyone stay “on the same page.” All parties remain in the loop!
IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR DELEGATES!
- If you previously had parent/third-party access, as of July 1, 2013, that access is no longer available; thus,
- if you are accepting delegate access from a student and your current GCID is an email address, you must reactivate your account.
- Do so by clicking the link under To create a new account because you do not have an GC account . . . in the confirmation email.
