"Proxy access" is the ability students have to grant others access to view their financial aid information in BU BRAIN. BU BRAIN is where students go to perform transactions. The person granted access to the information is known as the "proxy." The most common scenario is granting a parent access information. The student controls what information to share and who can view it. At this time, only financial aid information is available through Proxy Access.
Note: There is a separate process the student must follow to add an authorized payer in QuikPAY for billing purposes.
