  2. Enter either the student's personal email address used on their admissions application if this is the first semester they are attending Texas State University or, if they are a continuing student enter their Texas State University email address.
  3. Parents and family can request access to:
  • Academic Records/Transcript - Advising Center/Office of the University Registrar

Having trouble connecting to your student? 

  1. Cancel the request by clicking on the graduation cap; scroll to the bottom, Click "Cancel this connection." 
  2. Start a new request with the student's correct email address.
  3. Student gets an email and approves your request.
  4. If you are still having issues watch our video tutorial.

When students accept their parent or family member’s request, they must accept the connection and then must approve the FERPA requests. Parents and family members can either request everything or choose à la carte what they would like to see. Similarly, the student can either grant access to everything, or pick and choose what they would like their parent to have access to. Students can revoke access at any time by logging into the Bobcat Family Portal with their Texas State username and password.


Forgot your PIN?

During the process of requesting access to your student’s record, you’ll be asked to create a PIN. You’ll need to remember this PIN – if your connection request is approved by your student and you need to call for information about your student’s records, you’ll need to use that number to confirm your identity and your ability to access your student’s record.

If you can’t remember your PIN, you follow the steps below to reset it:

  1. Log in to your Bobcat Family Portal account
  2. Click on the graduation cap icon at the top right side of the page
  3. Click on 'Go to My Connections'
  4. Click on ''Forgot PIN?' Click to reset'
