Becoming an Authorized User

Authorized users are family and friends that have been given the ability to access the student’s account information. In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), a student’s financial record may not be shared without their consent.

Student Accounts staff will not disclose any information regarding a student unless they have been listed as an Authorized User.

Students can add an authorized user by logging on to their Scripps Portal and following these steps:

Step 1: Go to Student Tab

Student Tab

Step 2: Go to CASHNet


Step 3: Click on “CASHNet”

Go to CASHNet

Step 4: Go to “My Account” on the left side menu. 

Step 5: Scroll down to “Payers” and click “Send a payer invitation”. Complete the required fields and click “Send Invitation”.


The system will send out an email to the Authorized User’s valid email address with a temporary password. Authorized users must set up a new password within 24 hours of receipt or the temporary password will become invalid and the student will need to re-authorize the user. Once set up, authorized users can access CASHNet to view account activity and make online payments for a student’s account.
