Academic information such as grades and transcripts is NOT viewable.
The parent (Authorized User) will receive an e-mail indicating that the student has given them access to their account. This
e-mail will contain a temporary password. Login using the following link: https://secure.touchnet.com/C20115_tsa/web/login.jsp

reflect all activity on the account and may not equal the balance on the last ebill if there have
been recent changes. The Current Account Status reflects the real-time balance of the student's account.
