The Pros And Cons Of UTSA

Decent Essays
UTSA does not offer a parent portal, as a result, students need to give their parents their IDs and passwords to sign-on onto the UTSA system to perform electronic payments for tuition and fines. Additionally, a unknown portion of the electronic identities sent to “student applicants” are sent to a parent’s email which was the email utilized on the Apply Texas application and subsequently the parent is the one who sets up the account and establishes the password for the student’s account. Both of these scenarios subsequently allow parent’s unauthorized access to additional restricted FERPA data (e.g. grades) without documented authorization from the student.
