Fulfill Parent eSignature Requirements

In most cases, you will be required to have a parent eSignature. To do so you'll need to create a proxy account so that they can log into MySlice and complete the form.

Create the Parent or Guardian Proxy Account

Note that there are two ways to create the proxy account. You can do so through the page found in your student admissions acceptance form (image below) or by manually creating it by clicking Set Up Additional Access under Share My Access. Manual proxy account creation and management instructions can be found on our Sharing MySlice with Parents or Guardians answers page.

Must Check Off AAF Access

Please note that regardless of how you create the proxy account, you must check off "Allow AAF Access". This will ensure that the parent or guardian will see the admissions acceptance form upon logging into MySlice.
