FERPA Instructions for Students

Directions to set up Information Release (Proxy):

Please Remember:

  • You can add a new proxy relationship at any time
  • You can change what your proxy can see or have access to at any time
  • You can delete a proxy at any time

Step One:

  • Log into your MyMU Account: mymu.marshall.edu

Step Two:

  • Select MILO Icon on the left hand menu
  • Select “Information Release” Tab
  • Click “Proxy Management” Link

Step Three:

  • Click “Add Proxy”
  • Fill in all required fields (first name, last name, email address, and verify email address for desired proxy)
  • Click “Add Proxy” again
  • Once proxy is added, your parent/guardian/spouse/other should receive an email

Step Four:

  • Click the name of the person you just added to expand the menu
  • Select a relationship from the drop-down menu (only one option)
  • Add a short description (i.e. mother, father, grandmother, husband, wife, coach)
  • Add a passphrase (this is a phrase that your proxy will need to know so that they may speak to or email with staff/faculty at Marshall about your records)
  • Click “email Passphrase” to send passphrase to proxy— there are also options to reset PIN or delete Proxy Relationship
  • Optional: Change the “stop date” (it defaults to one year)

Step Five:

  • Click the “Authorization Tab”
  • Check the boxes of all records you wish your proxy to have access to (this can be changed at any time)
  • Once the boxes are checked or unchecked, the changes will be automatically saved

To Delete Proxy Relationship:

  • Login to MyMU
  • Select MILO icon on left menu
  • Select “Information Release” tab
  • Once into the proxy menu, click on the name to expand the person in which you wish to delete
  • At this point you can either
    • Click “delete proxy relationship,” then confirm that you wish to delete that proxy (an email will be sent to the proxy notifying them that they no longer have access)
    • Change “stop date” to the next day
  • Both of these options will no longer allow that person proxy access
