Set up access to view a student’s eBill and make payments
You, the student, can set up an "authorized user" such as a parent who can make payments to your account.
- Log in to My Akron and go to the Finances section of the Student Center.
- Select "Authorize Parent Access."
- Set up a PIN and add your parent's e-mail address so he or she will receive notification when the bill is available.
Your parent can change his or her password or e-mail address by logging in to the system.
Authorized User Questions
- Anyone the student chooses to set-up in the Authorized User PINs section.
- The student will give the authorized user a login name and password.
- Do not let others do transactions with your login. Give them their own login and password in the Authorized User PINs section.
