Authorized Users (Proxies) for Your Account

This information pertains to Berklee College of Music students only.

Boston Conservatory at Berklee students: Learn how to manage authorized users through your Conservatory Self-Service account.

If you would like to give a family member or friend access to certain aspects of your MyBerklee account, you can add them as an authorized user, also known as a “proxy.” In MyBerklee, you can grant them access to do some or all of the following:

  • View account activity (financial information and statements)
  • Make a payment 
  • View grades 

If you choose to grant authorized access to someone, please note the following:

  • The authorized user will have access to your account until you revoke it, or until six months after your graduation or 14 months after you leave Berklee.
  • The authorized user will see your preferred name. If you don’t want this person to see your preferred name, they should not be an authorized user for your account.
  • The authorized user will be allowed to access the relevant information in MyBerklee and by contacting a Berklee representative by phone or email.
  • The authorized user may also receive emails about billing and deadlines.

Your Privacy and FERPA

Under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, Berklee is prohibited from sharing certain information from your education records to a third party, including your parents, spouse, or financial sponsor. This protects your academic and financial record, including: grades; billing; assessment of tuition and fees; financial aid (including scholarships, grants, work-study, or loan amounts); and other student education record information. The only way for a third party to access your account details is if you add them as an authorized user.

Additional information on policies and procedures relating to Berklee’s compliance with FERPA can be found in the annual Policy Handbook for Students
