Parent and Third-Party Access
Students have the option of creating a mySLU Share account. This account allows a person to access certain records a student has authorized for release. For example, a student may choose to release their financial aid or grades to a third party.
Contact your student if you would like to have a mySLU Share account established. They have complete control of the account at all times. Any access issues need to be discussed with them. Please see the frequently asked questions (FAQ).Using a mySLU Share account is a responsibility. The information in the account belongs to the owner of the account (your student) and to Saint Louis University. Authorized Users have been trusted by the account owner as a delegate to access his or her information, including confidential information, and it is your responsibility to protect that information.
Before you can use a mySLU Share account, the account owner must set up your Authorized User account. Once this has been done and you have your login information, follow these steps
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, is a federal law controlling the confidentiality of, and access to, student education records. Once a student reaches 18 years of age or attends a postsecondary institution, he or she becomes an "eligible student," and all rights formerly given to parents under FERPA transfer to the student. Detailed information about FERPA at Saint Louis University can be found at FERPA.slu.edu.
