Create Proxy
Access
Students can designate another person (a proxy) to access and view academic and financial aid information their account. 

Granting access allows parents/guardians, spouses, and others to stay up-to-date on financial aid awards and requirements, class schedules, grades and more. Students control exactly how much information a proxy can view. Once a proxy is added to your   MySAIL  account, the student controls the authorization settings to enable the proxy to view certain pieces of information. Their settings are “view only,” meaning a proxy can never make changes to any information in MySAIL.

How to add a proxy in MySAIL:
