SETTING UP AUTHORIZED PAYERS
When you receive your first e-mail reminder to check MITPAY, you are the only one who will be able to view the student account and make payments. If you want to allow someone else such as your parents to have these privileges, you must designate them as authorized payers. Here’s how:
- Log into WebSIS (the web-based system that provides secure access to students’ academic, financial and biographical records) and click on MITPAY. You must be on a computer that has MIT certificates installed.
- Click on “Authorize Payers” to enter the authorized payer’s e-mail address and create a temporary password.
- Have your authorized payer access MITPAY. The first time your authorized payer logs in, he or she will create a permanent password. They may also enter banking information by clicking on “Add E-Check Profile” if they want to make payments electronically.
If you’re an authorized payer and you want to receive e-mail reminders about statement updates each month, log onto MITPAY, and click on “User Preferences” and follow the instructions.
