Why did I receive an email about being granted access to an MCAD student’s information?

  • An MCAD student has chosen to grant you access to their student account information, financial aid, records, and/or housing information.
  • You will receive an email from the MCAD Records Office once your account request has been processed (please allow 2-3 business days to process Parent/3rd Party access requests).
  • This email will include a link to create a password to log in and access the student’s information.
  • Once your password has been saved, go to and click the “Login to” button, located near the top of the page.
  • To log in, use the email address from which you received the access invitation as your username, and enter the password you created.
  • Once you have successfully logged into myMCAD, click the ‘Student Info’ tab to access the student’s information.
  • According to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), students 18 years of age or older may restrict access to their educational information. For more information, please visit FERPA online.

If you have any questions, please contact the Records Office @ 612-874-3727 or visit them in M103.
