>Create the PLNU Parent Portal

  • To set up a parent portal account, have your student log into his or her account. Under the "Students" tab, have your student click on "Update Information Releases," which is under "Profile Update." In this setting, your student should be able to see your name under the "Financial Info" section followed by a six digit number (it should look like this "[xxxxxx-Parent]"). That number is your parent ID. Copy that number down.
  • Then, on the main page (without being logged in), click "Create Account." Follow the directions, filling in the appropriate blanks. Be sure to use your parent ID as the ID number. When you finish, you will have a parent account with which you can log in. When logged in as a parent, you should be able to see a "Parents" button where you can access financial information.
