Additional Authorized Access

You may need to grant access to your student records to somebody else, and we have all the information you need to do that.

University of Missouri-Kansas City students can grant other users direct and authorized online access to their student information in Pathway, which may include:

  • Campus Finances - grants access to view current and past charges.
  • Academic Information - grants access to view class schedule, grades and transfer credit information.
  • Directory Information - grants access to view address, email and phone information.
  • Financial Aid - grants access to view financial aid information. This includes information about awards, loans, scholarships, fellowships and work study jobs that you have received or have been offered. If you have applied for financial aid, it includes information about the status of your application.

In authorizing Additional Authorized Access (AAA) members, the student acknowledges that the university is not responsible for any unauthorized disclosure of student information by your registered members.

Important Information for Authorized Users

Your student may choose to grant you direct and authorized online access as an Additional Authorized Access member. By virtue of creating this AAA account, your student is granting the university permission to share specified records with you. Students have the right to revoke this access at any time.

The federal law called the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, also known as FERPA or the Buckley Amendment, maintains that a student's educational and financial records are private and confidential. The information contained in these records may only be released with consent from the student.

If your student has set up an AAA account, you will receive an email message with directions on how to set up your password and log into AAA.

Frequently Asked Questions about AAA

They simply need to log into Pathway and navigate to the Additional Authorized Users page and change the access granted.

Additional Authorized Users will be able to view account inquiry information on Pathway. This includes current and past charges and credits applied to the student account.

There is a difference between the account inquiry tab and the electronic billing statement. The information on the account inquiry tab is real time and the billing statement is static. The account inquiry will reflect current, real time activity where the billing statement shows activity for a specific period of time. The billing statement will also reflect anticipated aid which can be used to reduce the amount to pay, calculates an adjusted amount due to pay the current month’s bill in full or a minimum payment, communicates a payment due date and discloses when finance charges and late fees are assessed.

The student will be required to provide additional access to this information. The University of Missouri system contracts with a third party vendor, Nelnet, to host student electronic billing statements and provide electronic payment options. Students will establish this additional access to Nelnet for their Additional Authorized User in Pathway.
