Proxy Access

All students are able to grant their parent or authorized payer access to a proxy version of Self-Service, which enables the parent or authorized payer access to academic and/or financial information for the student. As such, students can assign proxy users with access to Account Activity and Student Statements. Proxy access to Self-Service will also allow Quinnipiac University to include the email address of the parent or authorized payer so that the university will be able to communicate important billing information with students, as well as the parties authorized by the student, via email.

Log Into Self-Service

A student must first grant permission through Self-Service before we are able to discuss account information.

Before a proxy may begin making online tuition payments on behalf of a student, the student must grant permission. This is a one-time setup requirement for proxy users paying on a student's behalf.

  1. Students must log into Self-Service for Students with their QU Credentials.

  2. Select User Options, and then click View/Add Proxy Access.

  3. Under “Select a Proxy,” select one from the list or select add “Add Another User.”

  4. Fill in required fields with the requested proxy user’s information.

  5. Choose which options you would like the proxy user to have access to. Please note: In order for a proxy to view the student’s account activity, view a student statement, and make a payment, make sure that all check boxes associated with Student Finance are checked.

  6. If the student agrees to add this proxy user, check the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) box and click “Submit.”

  7. Click “Continue” to add the new proxy user.

  8. Once complete, the new proxy user will receive an email message with a username and temporary password.

  9. The proxy user can now log into Self-Service and set up a permanent password.
