Set up Proxy Bill Pay through eServices
Students can assign proxy access to designated individuals to view University account information and make payments on the their behalf. A student who wishes to provide this access can do so by logging in to mnsu.edu/eservices, selecting the Bills and Payment menu item, and clicking on the “Give Someone Access to Pay My Bill” button on the Bills and Payment summary screen. The first time the student is required to read and accept the Terms and Conditions. Once accepted, the name and e-mail address of the alternate payer may be provided. Clicking on the “Send or Renew Access Request” button will initiate an e-mail message sent to alternate payer with instructions to activate his/her access within five days. Proxy bill pay access remains active for six months; a student may revoke access at any time, as well as renew access after it expires or is revoked.
The proxy bill payer will have access to functions within the Bills and Payment section of eServices, which includes viewing the student’s class schedule through the Account Activity PDF form. The proxy bill payer will not be able to enroll in a Nelnet/FACTS payment plan, will not have access to other sections of eServices, nor can s/he designate anyone else to have proxy bill payer access. Students may also designate more than one individual as assigned alternate bill payers with proxy access to their account. It is recommended that access is limited to family members such as a parent, spouse, or legal guardian. It should also be noted that providing access to alternate payers is not considered a guarantee of payment; the student retains sole responsibility for timely payment of all account charges.
