Logging into Touchnet as an Authorized Parent/Guardian User (How-to)


Students will need to set up authorized users if they want their parents/guardians to have access to their account. This tutorial shows an authorized user how to log in after the student has added the authorized user to their Drake Student Account. For more information on parent access, see drake.edu/parents/payment.

1. Student Allows Access

Before an authorized user can log in the student must give them access to the account as seen below. For step by step instructions on providing access see Setting Up an Authorized User in Touchnet (How-to).

7. Assistance

ITS staff do not have access to manage access to a student's records. If you're having trouble logging in, we recommend the following troubleshooting steps:
  1. Ask your student to remove your access, logout of their Drake accounts, restart their browser, log back in, and re-add your access.
  2. Use an incognito or private window in the browser to ensure it's not a cookie/cache issue.
  3. Click the "Forgot Password" link on the TouchNet login page to reset your password.

If all else fails, reach out to TouchNet customer care at 888-621-4451 or customercare@touchnet.com.
