Using the Student Link, students can sponsor a ShareLink login account and grant, revise, or remove viewer access to three key pieces of their record: academic transcript, proof of enrollment, and Student Accounting Services invoice.
Log in to the Student Link, click the “Personal” tab, and select “ShareLink Access” under “Manage Access to Your Academic Information.”
To add a viewer (parent/guardian, employer, insurance representative, loan officer, etc.):
- Enter the required information for the individual, then click “SUBMIT.”
- Read the viewer confirmation message, then click “CONFIRM.”
- Select an end date from the drop-down menu for only the view(s) you wish to share, then click “SUBMIT.”
- Please review the access confirmation message. You will also receive a confirmation email for your records, and an email with further instructions will be sent to the viewer.
To add another viewer, simply click “Add new Viewer” on the ShareLink Access page.
To revise an end date for an existing viewer, click “Revise End Date” beside the view you wish to change. Select the appropriate end date from the drop-down menu, then click “Confirm.”
To add more views for an existing viewer, click “add more views” under the appropriate viewer. Select the end date from the drop-down menu, then click “SUBMIT.”
To remove access from an existing viewer, click “Remove Access” beside the view you wish to revoke, then click “Confirm.” You will be required to re-enter your Kerberos login and password.
When the student grants you access, you will receive an email notification with information on completing your BU web account registration; click the link provided to proceed.
Enter the required information. You will need the BU ID for the student who has granted you access.
Read the BU Conditions of Use and Policy on Computing Ethics, and click “Accept these conditions and create account” to complete the web account registration. On the next page, click “Continue” to access ShareLink.
The view(s) for which you have access, and the length of availability for each, will be displayed.
