New features: PASS Express and Guest User Access

May 16, 2014

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville is pleased to announce the following new student access features:

Guest User Access

Guest User Access capability is now available for students to give third- party access to student accounts. Through PASS and PASS Express (see announcement below), students will have the ability to set-up and manage Guest Users. Students may opt to allow access to limited features or all guest access features. When managing guests, you must provide the correct email address for the guest – as access is granted to the guest through the email they will receive with log-on credentials.

Students may give Guest Users access to the following features:

  • Pay/View What I Owe
  • View Account Activity
  • View Class Schedule
  • View Contact Information
  • View Financial Aid
  • View Grades
  • View Holds
  • View To Dos

*** Guest user access applies to online only access to your account. FERPA regulations do not allow the university to discuss student information over the phone or in person in the absence of the student.

Instructions on granting guest user access through PASS or PASS Express are posted in the ITS Knowledge Base.
