Accessing Your Student's Bill

To access your student's bill and perform transactions on behalf of your student, your student must set you up in TritonPay as an Authorized Payer.

Understanding Your Access

TritonLink (Students Only)

TritonLink is your student's portal. It’s also how your student can access TritonPay, where they can provide a parent with access to view their bill and reset parent access when there are login issues. Parents cannot access TritonPay to view or pay a student’s bill until they are invited to become an authorized payer and set up their own TritonLink account.

Authorized Payer Portal

Once you are made an authorized payer, you’ll have access to TritonPay to view and pay your student’s bill. For Student Financial Solutions to provide details regarding your student's account, you must be set up as an authorized payer. Otherwise, Student Financial Solutions cannot share any details about your student’s account with you.

Obtaining Authorization from Your Student

Students may authorize up to three payers to view and pay their university bill. Students can also cancel any authorized payer at any time.

Check out this step-by-step tutorial video on how students can authorize payers, how payers can create their own portal login, and some helpful troubleshooting info.

Important note: Once your student has authorized you as a payer, you will receive an email with instructions to create a login to view your student's billing portal. You must do this within 14 days of receiving the email.

Viewing and Paying Your Student’s Bill

Once you are set up as an authorized payer, you can view and pay your student’s bill by logging into TritonLink. Check out this step by step guide about navigating your student’s account (PDF) for more details.

There are several different ways to pay your student's bill, including:

  • E-check
  • Credit cards
  • Transfermate, Flywire, or Convera
  • Other payment options (i.e., cashier’s check)
  • Financial aid and scholarships funds
