Billing and Payment Center by Touchnet access is added by the student inside the Billing and Payments Center Portal.  Please note, this is different login credentials than the Parent Portal.

*Parent Portal access is granted by the Student on the Parent Access link of the Student Tab on the Appalnet. If a parent pin needs to be reset (if it is forgotten) or an email address needs to be updated, the student must do this by selecting the same Parent Access link on their Appalnet and entering the new information and submitting. More information on Parent Access and the FERPA law can be found at this link:
