Students have the ability to create an authorized payer within QuikPay, Bowdoin's online billing and payment system. Authorized Payers may view account statements and make payments.

The authorized payer has a unique username and password. When a new account statement is available, an email will be sent to the student and any authorized payer on the student account.
