What Is Profile Sharing?
You are able to grant access to your student account information via a feature in myUMBC called Profile Sharing. Depending on the level of access you grant to the other person, they may be able to see your billing and financial aid To Dos, billing summary, and financial aid summary. You may also grant this person the ability to contact university offices by phone, email, or in person to access your records.
When sharing your profile, please be aware of how it affects your rights as they relate to The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects the privacy of student education records by limiting the disclosure of such records. Sharing your own profile is one of the ways you may request that UMBC disclose your records to others.
How Do I Share My Profile?
For instructions on how to provide a person access to your billing and financial aid information, please see our Profile Sharing Instructions. If you have trouble or are interested in sharing another section of your myUMBC, visit the university’s Profile Sharing FAQs for more information.
What are the Technical Requirements for Profile Sharing?
Please be aware that sharing your profile requires the authorized person to have a myUMBC, Google (Gmail), or Facebook account to complete the process. If the person you wish to share your information with does not have one of these accounts but you would like them to be able to call, email or visit Student Business Services or the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships and obtain information, please fill out the Authorization to Disclose Information Form. Please note that your Profile Sharing login is the login you use to access your myUMBC, Google (Gmail) or Facebook account which may be different than your Parent Pin login.
Electronic form not working? Please try viewing the form in IE or Firefox with the latest version of Java installed. New students should also upgrade their myUMBC account if not already completed. If you are still experiencing difficulties you can submit a paper form.
