ADDING AUTHORIZED AND/OR PROXY USERS
At WMU, we respect the privacy of our students and their families. In an effort to ensure that personal information is not relinquished to any unauthorized user, we practice the guidelines set forth under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Students may choose to set a parent or third party up as an Authorized and/or Proxy User. Federal laws and regulations require students to authorize individuals whom they wish to have access to their information with the following options:
- Authorized User - access to billing information. Managed by Accounts Receivable (269) 387-4141.
- Proxy User - access to financial aid and academic information. Managed by the Registrar's Office (269) 387-4300.
