Revoking Access

You may revoke the access you granted to someone at any time by logging into mynmu and getting back into Proxy Management (see instructions above). Expand the record of the person designated as a Proxy. Click “Delete Proxy Relationship.”  This person’s rights to review your academic records will immediately be revoked.


Your academic records are protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).  By designating a proxy and granting that person permission to view your records, you are waiving your rights under FERPA and giving Northern Michigan University permission to share specified records with the individual you identified. For more information on FERPA, visit
