Federal Title IV financial aid funds (i.e., Pell Grants, SEO Grants, Stafford Loans, Perkins Loans) are automatically applied to your tuition, fees, room and board. However, by law, other miscellaneous charges incurred during the academic year cannot be paid by Federal Title IV funds without your authorization.

For your convenience, you can authorize the Bursar’s Office to use your Federal Title IV funds to pay any and all charges that may appear on your fee bill for the academic year. This will prevent outstanding charges on your fee bill that can result in a Bursar hold. To complete your Title IV Waiver:

  1. Log in at http://studentadmin.uconn.edu, click Self-Service and then Student Center.
  2. Scroll down to the Finances section and click the Create Student Permissions link.
  3. Click the Title IV Financial Aid Waiver link.
  4. Read the introduction, proceed to the next page, select the radio button and then click the Create Waiver button.

FERPA (The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) is a federal law protecting the confidentiality of student records. It restricts others from accessing or discussing your educational records without your consent. Through the UConn FERPA Privacy Waiver you can grant specific individuals the ability to discuss specific records (including parents, guardians, spouses and employers).

Read the FERPA Privacy Waiver Provisions to be sure you understand the types of information the participating University offices may disclose and the Frequently Asked Questions.

NoteThis action is only for permission to disclose information. It is not the same as designating an authorized user access to e-Bills and Payment Plans.

To complete the required waiver, log in to the Student Administration System and navigate to the FERPA Privacy Waiver:

  1. Log in at http://studentadmin.uconn.edu, click Self-Service and then Student Center.
  2. Scroll down to the Personal Information section and click the FERPA Privacy Waiver link.
  3. Enter the First Name and Last Name of the designee.
  4. Assign a unique 4-character Access Code (letters, numbers, or special characters, no spaces) for up to four designees.
  5. Select the checkbox for the type of information you wish to disclose for each designee.
  6. Click the Save and return to Student Center button.
  7. For more info see http://studentadmin.uconn.edu/help/students/complete-the-ferpa-privacy-waiver/

To indicate no designees scroll to the bottom of the page and select the checkbox I do not wish to disclose information to any designee.

You can designate a parent, guardian, spouse or employer as an authorized user. The authorized user you delegate will then receive email notification of e-bills and be able to enroll in the installment payment plan, view current activity, and make payments on your account.

NoteThis action is only for permission to view and pay the fee bill. It is not the same as assigning a FERPA access code to a designee to discuss specific records.
