Welcome, Chattanooga Parents!

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga knows that parents and family play an important role in student success. We want you to have the information you need to support your student throughout the college years. This website is meant to connect you with the information you need every step of the journey, from Admission and Orientation to your student's graduation from UTC.

Fee Payment

Before paying student fees, your student must authorize your access to his/her account. To grant parental access, your student will: log onto MyMocsNet, navigate to “Manage My Account” on the Money tab, click on “Go to My Account” and follow the process to authorize users.

After your student authorizes your access to their billing information, you will receive an automated email message explaining the online payment process. If you are paying fees for more than one student, each student must authorize parental access to their account and an email will follow before parents can pay fees.

Once authorized you can log in here to pay your student's fees.



Student Privacy (FERPA)

The University abides by federal regulations known as the "Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act," or FERPA. According to these regulations, a student's record is confidential. In keeping with the regulations, the University will only release directory information, such as a student's name, address, telephone listing, major fields of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, and the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student, unless the student has asked UTC to withhold such information.

According to these regulations, University personnel may not review the student's record and academic performance with the student's parents, guardians, spouse, or others unless the student provides written consent for the release of such information.

For more information:

UTC was named to the 2009 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.
