Student Authorization to Release Academic/Financial Information

Your academic and financial information is protected by Ontario government law (FIPPA) and University Senate policy.

This means that details of your records will not be given to any individual (including parents or guardians) unless you grant them access.

A student wishing the University to release his/her financial and/or academic information to an individual, including a parent, or to an agency external to the University, may do so through SOLUS. This will be effective until the student cancels the authorization.

Please note that possession of a student's login information (NetID and password) does NOT constitute a permission to access  or discuss their personal information. Only the registered student and those named individuals who have been specifically granted access to information can receive this information from our staff.

To assign access to your academic/financial information via SOLUS, please follow the steps outlined in the tutorial below.

  • 1. On the main page of SOLUS scroll down to the Personal Information section, click on the ‘other personal…’ dropdown box and select Release of Information. Click the Go button.
