Authorized Users Information

Morehead State University students can designate an individual as an "authorized user." This designation will give the individual electronic access to the information in the student's educational record. An authorized user may be granted access to Student Finance, Financial Aid, Student Notifications and Tax Information.  
This designation does not take the place of the protection afforded to the student under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Release of students’ non-directory educational records to parents and designated users is limited to what the student authorizes through the authorized user process or other explicit written consent.
