Email sent to parents/guardians regarding Proxy Access in Cyberfriar:
Dear Parents and Guardians of Providence College Students,
Providence College is pleased to introduce to you the newly developed Proxy Access system. This system will allow your student to give you access to his/her mid-term and final grades, as well as, financial information which is available on-line via CyberFriar. Authorization for parents and/or guardians to access this information must come directly from the student due to the protection of student rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
Students were recently sent an e-mail which outlined the steps to follow in order for you to gain access to this information. Once your student has completed this process, you will be sent an email with a link to follow and given a temporary Action Password. Click on the link which will bring you to a page where you will be asked to enter your Action Password. You will then be sent to another page which will enable you to set up your own PIN (use the Action Password as the Old Pin). This will bring you to the Proxy Access Homepage. Click on your student’s name to view the information that he/she has given you access to review.
If you have multiple students attending Providence College and they have each granted you access to the system, you may use the same PIN to view each student’s information. Each student’s name will appear as a separate tab on the Proxy Access Homepage. Students can add as many parent/guardians as they wish. If you forget your PIN, your student has the ability to reset it. If you need to change your email address, you can do so on the Proxy Access Homepage via the Proxy Profile tab.
Please note that access granted to this information does not supersede FERPA authorization by your student. If you are in need of further information other than what your student has given you access to through this system, please verify with your student that a FERPA form has been submitted to the Office of Enrollment Services. Also, access to the system is at the discretion of your student and access can be rescinded at any time by your student.
We hope that our new Proxy Access system will allow for a more user-friendly manner in which to share information. We encourage you to discuss with your son and/or daughter your own expectations regarding this resource.
