University Bursar - What are the benefits of having an Authorized Payer?

If you would like someone else to have access to your student account information or speak to a University Bursar representative on your behalf, you may authorize that person. These individuals are called Authorized Payers.
Authorized Payers will be able to view the student account, make online payments, and receive Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protected student account information.  FERPA prohibits the University from releasing specific student account information to anyone other than the student without the student's authorization. University Bursar utilizes the Authorized Payer functionality within UI-Pay as a FERPA release authorization.
