The following email was sent on June 18th to all new students from the Registrar’s Office.
Dear New Undergraduate Student,
You can grant others access to view certain pieces of your academic information in WIN. This is accomplished by you granting them “proxy access.” The most common scenario is for a student to grant proxy access to a parent or parents; however, you can choose anyone who has an e-mail address. By granting proxy access you are giving Wake Forest permission to share the selected information with that individual. This permission is necessary to comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
You are completely in control the proxy/student relationship. You can create proxy user accounts and assign access to very specific items in your record …such as your class schedule, holds and registration status, mid-term grades, final grades, and your academic transcript. You can decide at any time to discontinue an individual’s proxy access or discontinue that person’s access for a specific item.
It is our experience that most new students decide to provide parents with access to their records. To get started with setting up proxy access for those you select, first read the instructions at http://registrar.wfu.edu/proxyaccess/proxyaccesssetup/
We look forward to your arrive in August.
Harold L. Pace
