About My Plaid Student-The HUB - Carnegie Mellon University

What is My Plaid Student?

My Plaid Student (MPS) gives authorized users access to a student's invoices and student account activity, as well as the ability to make payments to the student's account. Students may also authorize their users to request enrollment verifications via MPS.

When students complete the authorization process, they can select the categories of information their invited user may access. Other categories of information will be available through My Plaid Student in the future. As new features become available in My Plaid Student, the student can update the areas of information available to the user.

Authorization & Access

The student grants access to the user (typically a family member of the student) via Student Information Online (SIO). The user will receive a guest invitation email with a link to begin the My Plaid Student registration and log-in process.

Registration with Cirrus Identity Services is needed in order to access My Plaid Student, unless the invited user has an active Carnegie Mellon Andrew email account. Cirrus uses certain social providers (Google, Yahoo, Facebook, LinkedIn) to offer protected access to My Plaid Student. These providers allow the user to self-register for My Plaid Student log in.

Not Registered?

student privacy

Carnegie Mellon asks that students keep their Andrew User ID and password private. Parents who wish to view a student's information are asked to not request SIO log-in information from their student. Instead, we suggest that parents and other family members use secure services like My Plaid Student and Invoice Authorization.
