Students may authorize "guests" (such as parents, grandparents, spouse, assistant, employer, etc.) to access their student account information. Individuals that are designated by the student will use the Guest Access feature to access the student's account information or to make a payment toward the student's account balance via WaveNet, the University's online community.
Please read the following information carefully regarding Guest Access features and procedures.
In Student Center under the Academics section, the student has a link for Manage Guest Access.
Clicking this link takes the student into the Student Guest Access page where the student can enter in the email address of the guest to be invited and select the information to which the guest should have access.
Students may authorize one or more of the following types of access for guests: show schedule, show grades, show financial aid, show account detail, allow making payment, and receive billing reminder e-mail. Click on the applicable hyperlinks to view a detailed explanation of each type of access.
Guests granted access to make a payment will need to know the amount to pay on the student account, unless the guest is also granted access to account detail.
Important: Please be aware that guests with access to make a payment will also have access to view and update any saved checking and or savings accounts that the student has previously stored for future payments. The guest will also have access to view and update the direct deposit account information established by the student for eRefunds.
Clicking the "Invite Guest" button sends the email invitation to the guest.
When a student authorizes a guest to access his/her student information, the guest is sent an invitation via email to create a Guest Access account and accepts the access.
The email invitation includes a link to the Guest Access Account Creation.
- Click on the link within the email invitation
Step 3: Create Guest Access Account
The guest is required to provide important information (such as name, birthdate, email address, mailing address) as well as a security question and answer to create a Guest Access Account.
Providing this information allows Pepperdine to create a unique account for each guest within WaveNet, the University's online community.
- Complete the Guest Access Account Creation Form, then click Submit
The guest will receive confirmation that the Guest Access Account has been created. The confirmation will include a link to log into WaveNet to access student information.
- Click on Log Into WaveNet
The guest will also receive confirmation of account creation via email. The email will include the guest's ID and password and a link to WaveNet.
Important: To access student information in the future, log in to WaveNet (https://wavenet.pepperdine.edu) and click the "Guest Access Center" link on the left of the WaveNet homepage. (If you forgot your login information, contact the Help Desk at 310-506-HELP.)
Step 4: Access Student Information / Guest Access Center
Students may authorize one or more of the following types of access for guests: show schedule, show grades, show financial aid, show account detail, allow making payment, and/or receive billing reminder emails. Note: Once a guest account has been created, the student may update the guest's access at any time by going to Manage Guest Access in WaveNet and clicking on the Edit button next to the guest's name.
The student who has invited the guest has already determined the type of information that the guest may access. Based on the access the guest has been granted, links and options within Guest Access Center may vary.
The guest will see the links and information for which they have been granted access.
- Click on the links to access student information
- Guests also have the ability to update their contact information and their security questions/answers under the Guest Options section of their Guest Access Center.
