Authorized User Merlin Account

Online tuition payments can be made by students or an authorized user account. Authorized users (parents or guardians) have the ability to access a student's account information.  In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), student financial records may not be shared with a third party without the student's written consent. Authorized user accounts must be created by the student by logging into his or her North Central College Merlin account. The creation of an authorized user account is considered written consent that an individual may view account information and make payments on the student's behalf.

ITS is unable to create or administer authorized user accounts as the student creates and manages all access to the account. For information about accessing an authorized user account, please click the links below.  

Please note that authorized users DO NOT have access to academic records, stored payment methods, or any other personal information.
