What is web4parent? Upon consent from the student, authorized parties are eligible to view student information via the MyISU Portal.

How do I get started using the web4parent?

  • Parent and child must first fill out the Information Needed from Student to Establish web4parent Accessform. All information must be filled out on this form for an account to be established.


  • If you are not comfortable supplying all of the information requested, you may have your student fill out the "Authorization to Discuss Specified Educational Records Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act" form which will allow you to call ISU regarding specific areas your student has given you access.


  • Once the form has been filled out entirely and signed by the parent and child, the form will need to be submitted to the Office of Registration and Records.


  • An account will be created for the parent once the form is turned in. Please allow several weeks for processing due to volume. Once the account has been created, an email will be sent to the student, notifying them to log into the Portal to begin the authorization process.
