How to Set Up Delegate Access

​​​​Please note: ​Delegate Access alone does not provide authorization to discuss student accounts with university staff, in accordance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)​. The student may grant authorization through QuikPAY​, Central Michigan University's third-party online billing and payment website, by creating one or more authorized payer accounts. ​
