  1. Log in to MyPortal and go to "Bill Payment" channel under the Student section. Click on the Pay Now button.
  2. Select "Authorized Users" under the My Profile Setup section.
  3. To designate an authorized user, you must enter an e-mail address for that person.
  4. The authorized user will then be sent an e-mail with a password and access instructions.
  5. Once access has been established, the authorized user will access your student account for payment independently outside MyPortal.
