The guest account feature on Hokie SPA allows a student to release their financial aid information, such as the award letter, requirements to receive aid, financial aid holds, academic progress, cost of attendance, and/or loan history, to selected individuals. It is important to note, when a student releases aid information, access to that information by the individual is allowed for all aid years.

Once information has been released, students can remove access to some or all information if they decide. To remove an individual's access to information:
Changes in the information released will automatically update in the individual's guest account access.
Once a student has invited you to create a guest account, you will receive two e-mails. The first e-mail will notify you that you have been invited to create a guest account and will contain a link to create your guest account. The second e-mail will contain the name of the student and the information released to you. Note: The link in the e-mail to create the guest access will only be valid for 48 hours.
The link in the e-mail will take you to a form, which will ask you to fill in your name, address, phone number, and password. Passwords must abide by password requirements (see the link on the form for more information on password requirements.)
Once you've made your account, log into the Guest Account Information Gateway:

Should you ever wish to delete your guest account, follow these steps: NOTE: These steps will completely delete your guest account from the system, you will have to create a new account if you wish to have access to information released to you.
