Authorized users will only have access to the financial information the student has made available to them through the Online Student Account Center. They will not have access to anything on Workday, such as grades and registration information. Visit our billing and payments page for instructions on accessing the online student account center to authorize a third party.

College Savings Plans (529 Plans) and Pre-paid Tuition Plans (UPlan)

Simmons University welcomes all college and university savings plans. Student Financial Services recommends that parents contact their individual plan provider for specific information regarding how to initiate payment. Most 529 plans send payment directly to the University based on an invoice supplied by the 529 holder. Some plans request that the University provide the invoice on behalf of the student. Please let Student Financial Services know if your plan provider requires documentation from University directly.

If you are using a pre-paid tuition plan to pay for tuition, such as the UPlan, please provide Student Financial Services with the provider name and the amount you will be using for the upcoming academic year. Once we receive this information, we will credit your account and ensure the timely receipt of payment from the plan provider.
