Confidentiality Waiver is step 3 in the Billing Worksheet.
A waiver of confidentiality authorizes GCC to discuss your account with others. Per federal and state regulations on the right to privacy, bills are in the student’s name. Therefore, the student bears the responsibility for payment. For this reason, bills for each semester are sent to the student’s address. Parents/guardians, or any other third party, may not receive specific information about a student’s bill, credit balance, or excess (refund) checks. If a parent or other third party is accepting responsibility for making payments on a student’s behalf, it is the responsibility of the student to share all correspondence, including billing statements, with those individuals.
How it works
A student may allow a third party to have access to billing information by completing the confidentiality waiver section (step 3) of the billing worksheet. If you have already completed the waiver in the past, you only need to complete the Waiver of Confidentiality section of the billing worksheet if: you wish to withdraw a previous authorization; if you’d like to change your password; or if you’d like to designate another person as someone who may have access to your account information.
Information to be released to the persons you have listed in the waiver
If you complete the Waiver of Confidentiality section of the billing worksheet, you are waiving your right to confidentiality by authorizing the Bursar’s Office staff to discuss with a person or persons you designate in this section, specific or general questions regarding your tuition & fee charges, payments, balance, waivers, refunds, or financial aid issues affecting your account.
Creating a password for persons you have listed in the waiver
The password serves to verify the person(s) authorization to obtain information about your account. You must provide a password that both you and the designee(s) share that will allow us to request the password prior to discussing your account. We will only discuss your account with the person(s) you’ve listed in this section who know your password.
Completing the waiver
Complete step 3 of the billing worksheet and sign and date the student certification statement at the bottom of the page. Be sure to enter your name and student ID number at the top of the worksheet. If you do not want us to discuss your account with anyone other than yourself, do not complete this waiver.
