Parent/Guardian Access

Note: As of February 28, 2017, the Directory ID and PIN process for accessing student records is inactive. Instead, parents/guardians must follow a new process for obtaining access to student information.*

The University of Maryland adheres to a policy of compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (Buckley Amendment). It is the policy of the University to limit disclosure of personally identifiable information from educational records without the student's prior consent.

Students can grant parents and/or legal guardians limited access to their student information. Access must be renewed annually; information includes:

  • current course schedule
  • mid-semester and final grades
  • student account balance information

*The University has implemented an enhanced system to provide a more secure means for parents/guardians to access student information online. Parents/guardians who wish to access their student's records must do so using a UMD account.

STEP 1: Parents/Guardians must complete an Associate Account Registration. For detailed instructions, see Create an Associate Account. NOTE: University of Maryland faculty and staff may use their current employee Directory ID and do not need to create an Associate Account.

STEP 2: After an account is created, students may grant access via Testudo. For detailed instructions, see Grant Parent and/or Guardian Access.

STEP 3: After access is granted, parents/guardians may use their newly created Directory ID and password to login and view their student's information here.
