Delegated Access


Prior to the myFSU Student Central system coming online, Delegated Access was called Parent/Third-Party Access. Read on for more information about Delegated Access.

It's easy to set up:

  • Delegated Access is a lot like Parent/Third-Party Access. A student still registers a parent/third-party (delegate), giving him or her access to categories of information.
  • After a student registers a delegate, that individual receives an email containing step-by-step instructions for activating delegated access.

It's customizable:

  • Delegated Access allows a student to select categories of information that a third party can view, and if necessary, on which that third party can perform transactions.
    • If the student selects it, a delegate can now access financial aid information in addition to all of the items that were previously accessible.

It's secure:

  • Delegated Access offers increased security.
    • IMPORTANT! A student assigns the delegate a PIN code. The student is responsible for remembering and communicating the PIN code to the delegate.
    • The PIN is used by FSU staff for identity verification in the event a delegate contacts the university regarding a student's information.
    • This verification system provides even greater security for student information.

It facilitates communication:

  • Finally, the new Delegated Access enhances communication-between a delegate and the student(s), and university staff and delegates.
    • The page view a delegate sees and the page view a student sees are virtually the same. This allows the student to walk a delegate through the user interface, helping everyone stay "on the same page." All parties remain in the loop!

  • If you previously had parent/third-party access, as of July 1, 2013, that access is no longer available; thus,
  • if you are accepting delegate access from a student and your current FSUID is an email address, you must reactivate your account.
  • Do so by clicking the link under To create a new account because you do not have an FSU account . . . in the confirmation email.
