CU: Parent Access to Student Records

Before you start…

Due to federal regulations (FERPA), students must grant access to their parents before parents can see their students' financial records and transcripts. Both of these actions are completed through CedarInfo.


Each parent will need a valid CedarNet Username and password to access the student's financial and academic records. Academic records include grades at the end of the semester. Grades are not available for classes currently in progress. Grades are available at the end of the semester by clicking the "View your transcript" link. See the video for further instructions.

Parents have limited access to student records and are not able to access student email.


Parents who are Cedarville University alumni or have another child who attends/attended Cedarville University may already have a username and password.

If you do not have a username and password, one will be automatically created when your student authorizes electronic access to his/her records. If you have lost or forgotten your username or password, contact Information Technology at 937-766-7905.


Students must grant parental access permission before parents can access the student's records through CedarInfo. This only gives parents access to financial and academic records. Parents cannot access student's email. Parents also need their own username and password and are not to use their student's login information.

For step-by-step instructions on the process, click on the [PDF Printable Instructions] or [Demonstration Video] below. 

If you would like to remove your parent's access to your student records, see the computer help page on how to remove parent access.
