Q: Can a parent use his or her child's MIT account?


We do not encourage students to share their passwords with anyone, and doing so is a violation of the MITnet Rules of Use.

If you need to pay a bursar's bill, the student can set you up as an "authorized payer" by following these instructions. If you're having difficulty using the authorized payer functionality, or have additional questions about paying bursar's bills, please contact Student Financial Services.

If you need to replenish a student's TechCash account, your student can create a "guest account" for you to use with the TechCash website. For more information, please see the FAQ or contact MIT Card Services at 617.253.0364 between 8:30am and 4:30pm, Monday-Friday.

We are frequently asked by parents how they can view student grades online. Unfortunately, this is not something we can assist with. For more information, please view the MIT Parents Association FAQ or contact the Parents Association by email ( or phone (617-253-8183).
