About Designee Access in KSIS


Designated Access allows students to grant others permission to access specific information in their student records. Students can give parents or others the ability to:

  • Pay bills
  • View tax information
  • View financial aid


  • Students
  • Designees 


How it works

To initiate Designee access, the student begins in KSIS to invite an individual to be a designee in KSIS. This provides the Designee access to specified student records. A designee can be a parent, a spouse, guardian, or anyone. The student can add, change or remove the designee and the designee’s access at any time.

Before starting this process, the student and designee should review this website and talk about each other’s expectations for access.

Note: Both the student and designee must actively read and follow the instructions in the emails sent from the IT Service Desk to complete the process of extending the offer, creating an eID and confirming designated access.
