FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act)

The Financial Aid Office is not able to discuss your information with your parents, spouse or other individuals without your written permission. The FERPA Act of 1974 protects the privacy of student records, including those created and maintained by the Financial Aid Office. Students are able to give "Guest Access" to individuals through their WINGS Student Center.

To Create Guest Access

Access remains in place until revoked. It does not expire. Be sure to share your information only with appropriate people. 

This permission includes access to see your bill through the WINGS Student Center but it is not the same as the access to see and pay the bill on the CashNet site, which UWL uses to collect electronic payments. A separate permission is needed for the guest to pay through that site. See the “Guest Access to See/Pay Bill” section.
