Add another person to a tuition account

How to add another person, such as a parent, to a student’s tuition account. This person is considered an “Authorized Payer.” Authorized Payers have access to view a student’s tuition account and also have the option to pay a student’s tuition bill.

Log in as an Authorized Payer

How to add an authorized payer

From the student’s MyUW Student Center:

  1. Select “Financial Account”
  2. Navigate to the Manage My Payment section, then select  “Manage My Payment”
  3. Under “Your Authorized Payers (Parent PINs)”, select “Add New”
  4. Enter all required information

Set a unique username for your Authorized Payer. The username/Authorized Payer will be unique to tuition payments. For example, you will need a different Authorized Payer username to pay for housing. If you receive an error message that reads “Parent PIN already exists”, the username is already in use at UW-Madison and you must select a different Authorized Payer username.

The email address should be the Authorized Payer’s email.

You may set up multiple Authorized Payers if necessary: just repeat this Authorized Payer setup process.

Then what?

  • The Authorized Payer will receive an email containing their login name, a temporary password, and a link to the Tuition eBill/ePayment website.
  • Login using the temporary password.  The site will prompt you to change your password.
  • Create a security question.  If a security questions is not created, the student will have to reset the password for the authorized payer (if needed).
