Self-Service Shared Access

Self-Service at Ohio Wesleyan University lets students give selected relatives online access to key information. Students can grant permissions to view the following: Academic Plan, Address, Balance, Financial Aid, Grade Report, Schedule, and Stop List. This lets the student’s relative login with a username and password to access shared student information 24/7.

Parents with multiple students enrolled at OWU can see information about every student who has invited them to share access from the same Shared Access account.

How Do I Grant Access?

First, the other party must be listed in the system as having a relationship with the student. In many cases, this has already been done. If the person you wish to invite to share access does not appear in the drop down box described below, or the person’s email address is incorrect, please contact Information Services. Follow the instructions below to grant access:

  1. Log in to Self Service at https://campus.owu.edu
  2. Click on “My Profile”
  3. Click on “Shared Access”
  4. Click on “Invite A User”
  5. Verify the Relative
  6. Verify the Email Address (*This step is critical, see bold text below) If there is no email address shown, then the invitation will be sent to the other party in care of the student’s email address.
  7. Place a checkmark next to the information you wish to share
  8. Read and place a checkmark next to the Disclosure Statement
  9. Click “Send Invitation”. This will send an email invitation to the other party.

* The invitation will be sent to the email address displayed in step 6. An incorrect email address may allow unintended access to your account. You are responsible for granting this access so be sure that the email address is correct.

How Do I Remove Access?

To add or remove access, or to delete access completely for a specific user, you can click on “Manage User Access”  and make the appropriate changes. To revoke all access, click “Delete User”. You will receive a confirmation email when an account is deleted. You are responsible for maintaining your shared access accounts and reviewing, adding, and removing access as appropriate.

How Do I Reset My Password? (Parents)

You must use the password that was issued to you. This password cannot be altered. If you don’t know or have forgotten your password, the only way to reset it is to completely reset the account, and the student must do this. Information Services cannot reset or change passwords for shared access.

  1. Follow the instructions above to remove access for the relation.
  2. Follow the instructions above to grant access again to that same relation.

Recreating the account will generate a new confirmation email and assign a new password.

If a parent with multiple students needs to have her password reset, then *all* students who have granted shared access will have to rescind that access. Otherwise, the original account will remain intact but will show information only for the students who have not rescinded access. Only after *all* access has been removed should one or more of those students re-invite the parent to share access, at which point a new account can be created.

How Do I View My Student's Information?
  1. When the student grants access, you will receive an email with a confirmation URL that you must click on to activate the account.
  2. Within 24 hours of activating the account, you will receive a second email with your login information. The message will be from webadmin@owu.edu (*current OWU employees please see the note in bold below).
  3. Go to https://campus.owu.edu
    Login
  4. Login with the information provided in the email.
  5. Click on “View Student Information”.

  6. Select the appropriate link for the information desired.SelectLink

* Please note that if the relation already has an active Self-Service account (such as a parent who is also an OWU employee), they will be able to login with their OWU BishopApps credentials immediately after clicking the confirmation email and will not need additional information.

**  Parents with multiple students enrolled at OWU can see information about every student who has invited them to share access from the same Shared Access account.

If You Have More Than One Student

Parents with multiple students enrolled at OWU can see information about every student who has invited them to share access from the same Shared Access account.

If a parent with multiple students needs to have her password reset, then all students who have granted shared access will have to rescind that access. Otherwise, the original account will remain intact but will show information only for the students who have not rescinded access. Only after all access has been removed should one or more of those students re-invite the parent to share access, at which point a new account can be created.

Students will find instructions above for removing and granting access.
