Parent/Guest Portal Login Instructions

Welcome to the Cal U Parent/Guest Portal!

Welcome to the Cal U Parent/Guest Portal. This new portal is now the exclusive method by which a University student may grant a third-party access to his or her records. Now, information that is protected from disclosure pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), such as grades, financial aid details, student account/billing and transfer credit information is maintained in a secure online environment. A student may grant permission to a parent or guest to access this information and make payments through this portal.

Due to the protection of students’ rights under FERPA, a student may restrict the information that a parent or guest is able to access and revoke access at any time. Please visit the FERPA page on the Academic Records site for updates and more information.
