Fall 2021 Reopening Plans
We will reopen our campuses for classes, activities, and residential living in Fall 2021. Find the latest information on our Fall 2021 Plan page.

Parent Portal

The Parent Portal is a self-service web-based tool where you, as the student, can grant real-time access to your academic account information to your parent/guardian.

Granting Access to the Parent Portal

Granting access is done through LOIS, but is also accessible from Self-Service. Through the portal, your parent/guardian will have access to the following information should you choose to grant it:

  • Option A - Academic Information
    • Student Transcript
    • Student Schedule
    • Student Grades

If you take no action, access will not be granted. If you wish to revoke access granted to a parent/guardian or other 3rd party, you may select the following option

    • Option R - No Access

    If you grant Option A access to your designated parent/guardian, he or she will have direct access to the same electronic records listed under Option A as you have through your LOIS account. Your other records, or information from those records, may be shared with your designated parent/guardian through conversations with Lesley University representatives and/or separate copies.

    Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) and subject to certain exceptions, the university may not release information pertaining to your education record to another individual unless authorized by you. Go to our FERPA page to learn more information about privacy rights.

    Your education records include many items such as grades, course performance, schedules, financial aid, tuition and fees, misconduct/disciplinary investigations, residence life information, and disability accommodations.

    You determine and control the level of access that your parent/guardian has to your account information. You may change the access level at any time.
