Setting up Authorized Users

Authorized Users

If somebody is assisting you with the financial aspect of your Reed College education, you may wish to grant that person authorized user access to manage your student account on-line. You may also want to authorize them to receive an e-bill.


Managing Authorized User Account Access

You (the student) can authorize others to assist with the management of your student account. Once the verification process is completed, authorized user account features include:

  • Real-time student account information, including payment and financial aid updates
  • Ability to generate custom account statements by term or date range
  • Student account integrated payment plan options
  • Ability to set up multiple bank accounts for student account payments
  • Integrated international payment option via Flywire
