Mozilla FireFox is the preferred browser for all Proxy Management and Access.
The Proxy Access System is available to all individuals who have been established as a proxy and have entered their credentials. If you would like proxy access, you must contact your student.
What is Proxy Access?
Wake Forest students can grant others access to view certain pieces of information that is normally available in their WIN account. This is termed granting “proxy access,” and the other person is referred to as the “proxy.” The most common scenario is for a student to grant a parent or spouse access to his/her information; however, the student can choose anyone who has an e-mail address. By granting proxy access the student is giving Wake Forest permission to share the selected information with that individual. This permission is necessary to comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
The proxy/student relationship is controlled by the student. The student can create proxy user accounts and assign access to specific pages within WIN. Proxy users can potentially view items such as a student’s class schedule, mid-term and final grades, and academic transcript. The student can reset a PIN for his/her proxy and can also choose to stop proxy access to his/her information. Requests to access student academic information and to become a proxy should be made directly to the student.
** Please note that proxy access does not work well with Internet Explorer. Mozilla Firefox is the preferred web browser for these services to work properly.**
