- How can I see a copy of my student's tuition statement?
Students can add a parent/guardian as an authorized user in the Student Billing & Payment Center. They do so by following the instructions in the “Invite other payers” box at https://calvin.edu/offices-services/financial-services/billing/.
After the student has designated a parent as an authorized user, then parents have to create their own username/password for the Payment Center. Those instructions are here: https://calvin.edu/offices-services/financial-services/billing/invite.html.
- How can I see a copy of my student's grades?
Students can login to their Self-Service account to give proxy access to parents and guardians to view grades. After a student has done this, the family member will receive an email with instructions for accessing the Calvin University Self-Service account. View the instructions for students and additional FAQs about using this system.
- What banking services are available on or near campus?
Banks such as Lake Michigan Credit Union, Fifth Third, Chase, PNC and Bank of America will have information tables at PASSPORT (orientation). Checks up to $200 can be cashed at the financial services office; some fees may apply.
