What is Proxy Access?
Proxy access allows a user to give someone else (usually a parent or guardian) limited access to designated portions of their records. Proxies can optionally also make payments to a student’s account on the student’s behalf. The proxy accesses these records through the Kalamazoo College’s web-based Self-Service system, Hornet HQ. Please note that the student has the right to rescind access granted at any time.
How Can I Receive Proxy Access to My Student’s Account?
To protect student privacy, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) requires us to obtain student permission before sharing their educational records. In order for a proxy to receive access to a student’s account the student must grant access first. For information on how students may grant parents, guardians, or other users online access they can visit the Instructions for Students to Grant Access page on the Information Services website. Again, please note that the student has the right to rescind access granted at any time.
