WVU Parent/Guest Portal


The WVU Parent/Guest Portal is the exclusive method by which a University student may grant third-party access to his or her records. Disclosure of information that is protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), such as grades, financial aid details, and student account information, is maintained in a secure online environment. A student may grant permission to a parent or guest to access this information through this portal. 

Due to the protection of students’ rights under FERPA, a student may restrict the information that a parent or guest is able to access and revoke access at any time. For FERPA updates and more information, go to ferpa.wvu.edu.

The Parent/Guest Portal is available from 12:00 P.M. Sunday through 11:00 P.M. Saturday, except for Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 1:30 a.m. – 4:30 a.m. EST due to system maintenance.
