Acting as a proxy for your child.

What is a proxy and can I be a proxy for my child?

  • A proxy is a person authorised to act on behalf of someone else. Deakin University allows a parent to proxy for their child providing that Deakin's Customer Service Team has been notified in advance by the student.
