Proxy Users:

Setting up Your Proxy Account

NMSU Students may provide “proxy access” to parents/guardians/spouses/friends as desired by going online at myNMSU. Once the student provides access, the Proxy needs to set up an account in order to access the student’s information.

Student User Prerequisite:

  1. The student sets you up as a proxy by following these simple instructions: Student User Instructions for Setting up a Proxy.

Proxy User Instructions:

  1. The first time you are set up as a new proxy, you will receive 3 emails.  Please note, if you are the proxy for more than one student, simultaneously or otherwise, then you may only recieve 2 emails, as the first email only gets sent out to each proxy once.  Here is a brief description of the emails, followed by the instructions needed to set yourself up as a proxy. 
    1. The first email (Subject line: New proxy identity) provides a one-time-use URL, needed to set up your access.  Please note that this URL is only used during this initial step.  After successful registration as a proxy, the second email contains a link for future proxy login. 
    2. The second email (Subject line: NMSU Proxy Access Assigned) provides a permanent URL needed to access the proxy login page from this point forward.  Use the URL in this email only after successfully registering as a proxy in step 1.  Please save this email or bookmark the website for future reference.
    3. The third email (Subject line: New proxy confirmation) provides a unique temporary password needed to access the URL from the first email.
  2. Follow these instructions in order to set up your proxy access.
    1. Click on the one-time-use URL provided in the first email.
    2. Use the temporary password provided in the 3rd email. Click Submit.
    3. Type your email address.  Confirm that it is correct.
    4. For the Old Password, use the temporary password that was provided in the 3rd email.
    5. Create your New Password.
    6. Re-enter your New Password to confirm that it is correct.
  3. The final step in the set up will bring you to the Proxy Access Home.
  4. You should see the following on your screen:
  • Proxy Personal Information (Your personal information such as name and email address)
  • I am a proxy for [student's name] (This contains a drop down menu with a list of the content that your student has authorized you to view)
Note: A proxy can have more than one student granting them proxy access, simultaneously or otherwise.  However, a proxy can only use one email address in order to view all of their students.  In other words, one proxy, one email address.
  1. From the drop down menu, select the content that you wish to view.
  2. To exit Proxy Access, click on the Profile tab on the top right corner of your screen and then Sign Out .
