CommunityLSU Accounts: LSU Overview


GROK Overview Banner

General Information

The communityLSU account is able to give secure access to the myProxy application to the parents or sponsors of LSU Students.   Through the myProxy application, anyone with a myLSU account can grant access (or a parent/guardian can Request Access) to pay a Fee Bill.  Any Faculty, Staff or Student can grant access to another to act on their behalf.  All that is needed is a myLSU account or communityLSU account.  

Getting Started

1. If you DO NOT have a myLSU account:

a.  Request a communityLSU account.

b.  Access the myProxy application.

2. If you DO have a myLSU account, LSU Students, Faculty & Staff can Invite Others to log in as them via the myProxy application. ("Let them login as me...")

3. Both myLSU & communityLSU accounts can Request Access from LSU Students, asking to log in as them via the myProxy application.  ("Ask if I can login as them...")

4. When signing into myProxy, you MUST use a different browser than the LSU student. Otherwise you will not be able to log in. We also highly reccomend using a computer and NOT a mobile device, if at all possible, to avoid issues logging in.
