Marquette Central Access Number

MCAN: A 4-digit number that protects student privacy.

In order to comply with Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act regulations, students must be able to verify their identity when calling or visiting Marquette Central for assistance. Students visiting Marquette Central only need to provide a photo ID. However, students calling for information will need their MUID number and a four-digit number referred to as a Marquette Central Access Number, available in their CheckMarq account.

Viewing and Changing the MCAN on CheckMarq

The MCAN can be found in CheckMarq on the Profile tile. The first time you access the MCAN you will need to agree to the Terms and Conditions. Log in to CheckMarq and click or tap the Profile tile, select MCAN from the menu on the left. Review the Terms and Conditions and click or tap I Agree. The four-digit number will then be provided to you and will be visible on the Profile tile when you log in. The MCAN is initially assigned randomly, but students can change it via CheckMarq at any time by going to MCAN under the Profile tile and entering a new number.

Guest access to your student information

Students may still grant online access to their financial and academic records to parents or others using the guest access procedures outlined in CheckMarq. This enables parents or others to access information online 24/7.

If parents or others want to talk with somebody at Marquette Central by phone about student financial and enrollment information, they must provide the MCAN and MUID numbers for verification. This information includes tuition, fees, financial aid and academic records, with the exception of the schedule of classes or any activity related to grades.

Students should be careful about whom they disclose their MCAN and/or MUID numbers to because personal information about their finances and academic records should be guarded.
