Authorizing Proxy Access (How-to)

As a student, you can grant access to third parties (typically parents or guardians) to view your academic information or receive communication from Drake. The instructions below show how to set up this proxy access and select what information you want to share with each party. You can authorize any or all of the below options, and can change or remove access at any time.

  • No Access – Campus Communications Only: Provides access to emails sent from Drake, including the parent newsletter
  • Student Profile: Provides access to your Student Profile Page in Self-Service
  • Student Holds: Provides access to information regarding holds on your account
  • Financial Aid Status: Provides access to your financial aid package and information
  • Student Grades: Provides access to a list of your courses with midterm and final grades
  • Academic Transcript: Provides access to the student's unofficial academic transcript
  • Tax Notification 1098T: Provides access to your 1098T form

NOTE: Access to academic information (Self Service) is separate from access to view your account balance or pay your bills (Touchnet). See Setting up an Authorized User in Touchnet (How-to) for instructions on granting financial access to a parent or guardian.
