Most Common Issues for Parents When completing Online Student Verification

1. Will not let me complete - You are not selecting the button at the bottom of each page that says "complete step # and move on to step #". If you do not see this button, make sure your browser is in full screen mode. This button is sometimes hidden if the browser is not full screen
2. It will only let me complete certain sections - Only Family 1 members have edit rights to all of the steps. If you cannot edit certain pages, you may be listed as Family 2 and have view only rights. If you think this is on error, please contact the school directly.
3. I don't know my login/password - Please see directions below to reset your password
4. I don't see this in the App - This is not able to be done in the App. Please complete on a computer or on the browser of a tablet/phone.
