CedarInfo: Privacy Permissions (Parents)

If you are a parent of a University student, there are steps your student must take in order for you to be able to discuss records with University staff members and in order for you to access electronic records. For information on these steps that your student must take, please see CedarInfo: Privacy Permissions (Students).

Once your son or daughter has granted you access, there are steps you can take to discuss and view his or her records: 

Discussion Permission: Instructions for Parents

There are certain offices on campus that require student consent in order for parents to discuss their student's records. These offices include Cashiers, Financial Aid, Registrar, Student Development, The Cove, and Disability Services. 

  1. When you call a CU office to discuss a student, the staff member will first verify online that access has been granted for you to speak with their particular office.
  2. You will then need to provide the code word your student created when he or she granted access. If you do not know the code word, please ask your student to share the word with you.

Electronic Access: Instructions for Parents

In order for you to have online access to your student's financial, academic, and residence life records, he or she will have to grant permission. Once permission has been granted, you can access records by completing the following steps:

Accessing Financial Information and Making Payments

  1. Open a web browser and navigate to Cedarinfo (cedar.to/cedarinfo).
  2. You can log in with your CedarNet username and password. If you do not know your username and password, please call Information Technology (937-766-7905) for assistance.
  3. Once you have logged in to CedarInfo, within the Financial Transactions section, look for the "Self-Service Student Finance..." options. Click the option to either view "Account Activity" or "Make a Payment." 
  4. Log in to Self-Service using your CedarNet username and password.
  5. Click the name of the student whose account you would like to access.

Accessing Your Student's Grades, Chapel Attendance, Course Schedule, Etc.

  1. Open a web browser and navigate to CedarInfo (cedar.to/cedarinfo).
  2. You can log in with your CedarNet username and password. If you do not know your username and password, please call Information Technology (937-766-7905) for assistance.
  3. Once you have logged in to CedarInfo, choose the "Change person to access" transaction (located under the "Individual (General) Transactions" section heading).
  4. On the page that appears, click the radio button next to the name of the student you wish to access. (If you do not see any names, that means your student has not granted you access yet.)
  5. Click [Submit].
  6. Click the "CedarInfo Main Menu" link located near the bottom of the screen. The screen that appears will display the selected student's information based on what the student has granted access to.
