Student Accounts and Authorized Accounts

Last modified 10/28/2021

The Student Account Portal allows a student to make necessary payment obligations to Illinois State University, view their detailed Financial Information, and set up a payment schedule for their payments.  

Who Can access my Student Account Portal? 

 All Illinois State University students have access to their Student Account portal after they are accepted to Illinois State University along with any authorized user that they set up within their account.  

Can My Parents/Guardian Access My Student Payment Portal With My Permission? 

Yes, you can set up what is called an Authorized User account to allow your parent(s) or guardian to submit payments for you within your Student Portal Account. 

For more information on how to set up an authorized user account, please read our Knowledge Base Article:
