Yes. Under the 1974 Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), any student attending a higher education institution is entitled to certain privacy rights as stipulated under FERPA. For this reason, information about a Program Participant (e.g., enrollment, billing, or payment information) cannot be shared without the student’s prior consent.
You can authorize a third party (e.g., parent, guardian, etc.) view-only access to your student records and direct access to pay your bill.
To set up access, the third party will establish their own separate UCLA Logon and password, communicate this information (UCLA Logon) directly to you, and you can select which MyUCLA features the third party can view or access in “Settings”. You may revoke or change access features at any time.
In order to set up access, the third party must first create a MyUCLA Logon ID and password. Once the third party MyUCLA Logon has been established, the student logs onto their MyUCLA and gives access to their third party. The student must know the Logon, first name, and last name of the person they are granting third-party access. Validation is done to ensure the correct third party is getting access.
On MyUCLA, select “Settings” at the top, then “Third Party Access.” Complete the instructions on the Third Party Access page.
Once the student grants access, the third party logs on with their MyUCLA Logon ID and will only see the functions to which the student has given access.
