Guest Access

We recommend that each student manages their own student account but understand there are cases where it is necessary for a parent, spouse or other third-party to access information or complete transactions on your behalf. 

Guest Access allows you to give another person access to your BYU account. We will not discuss your account or records with your parent, spouse or other third party unless Guest Access is granted.
