​​​​​Workday Access

Educational Information

Workday is a service that allows UF students to access their education records, financial aid information, and financial activity online. According to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), parents/guardians, also known as third-parties, must receive access permission from their student before they can view certain information, including grades, current classes, financial account activity, financial aid package, and student financial statement. Third-parties can pay tuition bills ​based on access permission granted by the student.​


For Students

Workday is an easy way to share your educational records with your parents or guardians. Here are the instructions to give your parents or guardians access in Workday to view your information:


2.     Click on Workday and log in

c.     Select Family and Friends at the top

d.     Click Actions in the far right column and select Edit Friends and Family

​​The third-parties to whom you grant access will receive an email with a user name and password. They will be able to login and view your selected educational records, including end-of-semester grades, tuition statements, financial aid awards, and more. You are not required to grant access to your records, but Workday makes it convenient if you wish to do so.

​​For Parents

Once a student has authorized their third-party user(s), the individual(s) will receive two emails. These emails are sent from [email protected] with the Subject: Third-Party Access to University of Findlay Student Account:


1.     Email #1 Username

2.     Email #2 Temporary Password


Both emails contain the Workday Third-Party Access website URL:
https://wd5.myworkday.com/wday/authgwy/findlay/login.htmld?redirect=n


Note: This website URL is different that the website URL a UF student would use to access Workday.


Using the emails sent from [email protected]:


1.     Click on the URL in the email after receiving both emails

2.     Enter the username and temporary password

3.     Change your password when prompted

4.     After successfully changing your password, the application will prompt you that it requires authentication and setup for security verification.

5.     From your phone, scan the QR code on the screen or if you already have the Microsoft Authenticator app, add an account and enter the Secret Key and Account

6.     Log in to access your student's information


Important! Your student MUST grant access to some or all information available to third-parties before the emails are sent with the username and password.​
