Creating an Access BGSU Proxy Account

Question

How does a proxy create an Access BGSU account?

Answer

After a student adds a proxy to Access BGSU, they will receive an email message with a link to create an account. The proxy should:

  1. Open the email message from familyaccess@bgsu notifying the proxy that they have been granted access to Access BGSU.
  2. Click on the link within the email.
    • Please do NOT reply to this email message; the mailbox is not monitored.
  3. If this is your first time accessing Access BGSU, fill in all the blanks to create a new account and select Create an Account.
  4. If you already have an account, and an additional student grants you access to their information, you should use your existing account to log in by entering your email address and password in the Returning User Login section and then select Sign In.
    • The proxy can enter a different email address here if the student didn’t set them up with their preferred email address.
  5. After reading the Terms and Conditions, check the box to accept terms and conditions.
  6. Enter the Security Key from the email notification.
  7. Enter your email address into the Contact Email field.
    • This must be the same email address that the student set up and to which the link and Security Key were sent.
  8. Select Submit.
  9. Your proxy account should now be created.
