Adults may wish to allow another adult to pick up holds or pay fines on their accounts. To do this, include their information when you register for your card, or fill out an approved user form at a later date.
Parents and adult guarantors have access to their child's account, and may designate a second adult to share access by indicating this on their child's (up to 14 yrs.) registration form. They may also fill out an approved user form at a later date to activate this option.
