Authorized User Access Directions

Students can give others (parents, spouse, etc.) the ability to access certain account information. In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), student financial records may not be shared with a third party without their written consent. By adding you as an authorized user in TouchNet, your student has given written consent for you to:

  1. View their account information related to payments and charges due.
  2. Make payments on their behalf.

Note: an authorized user does NOT have access to a student’s academic records or other personal information. This access is also not a Release of Information; if you wish to discuss your student’s account with a staff member, either by phone or in person, your student must have a Release of Information on file granting you this access.

  1. Your student will set up an account for you from their own login. You should receive two emails, one with a username, and one with a password.
  2. To log in, visit myBoiseState and click the Future Students/Guests option.myboisestate login-screenshot
