If you’re under the age of 18, you might have heard that you’ll be required to get your parent’s permission before receiving medical care in the United States. This is called minor consent.
Minor consent can be challenging sometimes, especially in the case of emergencies, where you need medical help immediately. Before, minor consent forms were processed in paper through the mail. This was was difficult because your parents are time zones and, sometimes, oceans away.
Now, MSU has created a way for your parents to give their consent online for you to receive medical care. They can do this before you even arrive in Michigan! This blog will show you step by step how to do that.
To access the minor consent medical treatment form, student should first log into StuInfo.msu.edu
Next, go to the Manage Guest page on StuInfo on the left hand side of the screen.
Be sure that you approve the FERPA warning. FERPA is a way to ensure your privacy!
Now, click Add Guest.
Your parent will fill out the form for Add Guest with all of the required fields.
Be sure to select the box marked Minor Consent for Medical Treatment. Click save.
Your parent will then receive an email instructing them to activate their Community ID if they have not already done so.
Once your parent activates their Community ID, they will need to log onto Stuinfo.msu.edu with their community ID and password.
They will be asked to enter in the student’s MSU Net ID and the parent’s name and click agree.
Next, the webpage for Minor Consent will appear. The parent should click on Minor Consent.
Your parents will then be presented with an online form for them to give consent for you to receive medical treatment. They must click the approve checkbox and submit the form.
They will then see a confirmation webpage.
If you have any questions, contact OISS for help. Do not wait to complete your minor consent form!
