Guide for students to grant access to parents and guests using the Parent Proxy system

Overview: This document outlines the process for students to give a parent/other guest access to specific account details.


As a student, you can give your parents or legal guardians access to your financial aid awards, personal information, student account, records and more. Please remind your Proxy to check their email inbox soon after adding them. The PIN they receive will expire in five days.

The proxy must have access to your “Statement and Payment History” to view your Statement and receive Statement notifications and other associated emails.

To grant a Parent/Other direct access to your Statement and account details, log in to MyDenison, click on the Self-Service button in the upper right-hand corner:

  1. Click on “Grant Access” at the bottom of the list (second from bottom).
  2. Click on “Access Management.”
  3. Click on “Add Person for Access.”
  4. Enter Proxy’s first and last name and email address and click on “Add Person for Access.”
  5. Click on “Expand” next to the Proxy’s name.
  6. Designate a relationship. (The start and stop dates will populate automatically).
  7. Enter a description (ex: Mom, Dad, Aunt, Sister).
  8. Click on the “Authorization” tab and select which records you want to share with the Proxy.
