Parent Access & Financial Aid Information
Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), educational records cannot be released to another person without the student's written consent. Students may provide access to a Proxy and/or Authorized User.
Students may designate a Proxy from the Proxy Management link in goStockton on the Student Services tab in the Registration Tools box.
Once designated, a Proxy will have access to view only the educational records selected by the student such as the bill, financial aid status, unofficial transcript and/or tax forms. Proxy access is restricted to VIEW ONLY.
Students may designate an Authorized User through their account in TouchNet Payment Systems*. From the Bursars area in goStockton, click on Make a Payment and wait to be redirected to TouchNet. Once in TouchNet, click on My Profile (top right) and then on Authorized Users (from drop down menu).
Once designated, an Authorized User will have access to billing information and submit payments on the student's behalf through TouchNet. Authorized Users WILL NOT be able to access any other educational records.
To reset password or for more information on creating a Proxy account, please visit ITS Accounts and Passwords website.
*Stockton contracts TouchNet Payment Systems to provide secure online payment processing.
About Financial Aid
Financial aid (including Student Loans, Parent Loans, scholarships or grants) will be used to offset university expenses billed to you.
Your financial aid award will NOT appear on your bill UNTIL you have formally accepted your award offer and/or signed all promissory notes for loans(see the Financial Aid tab in goStockton)
If the amount of anticipated financial aid does not cover the total amount due on your bill, or if your financial aid is reduced or cancelled, you are responsible for paying the balance by the payment due dates or enrolling in a payment plan.
NOTE: If you enroll in a payment plan, the payment plan payment amount WILL NOT reflect your financial aid UNTIL you have formally accepted your offer and/or signed all promissory notes (see Financial Aid tab in goStockton). Once you have accepted your award and it has posted to your bill, the remaining payment plan amounts will be adjusted.
Financial aid funds will be disbursed in accordance with applicable federal and state regulations. Upon disbursement, financial aid funds will be credited to the student’s account toward the outstanding balance. Any remaining funds will be remitted to the student as a refund (see Refunds page).
You may view your financial aid from the Financial Aid tab in goStockton.
