Updating your student/alumni information published on the website

Profile information:
  • Login.
  • Click on the link "Edit Profile Page".
  • To unlock your page so that it is editable, click on the "Workflow" tab and change the state from "Publish" to "Draft".  If you recently changed it from "Draft" to "Review", you will have to wait for the moderator to process the page before proceeding.
  • Click on the "Edit" tab and enter/update your info.
  • Note that the instructions for each field on the profile form are listed underneath the entry box, while the title of each field is in boldface above the box. This is not ideal, but it is beyond our control.
  • When you are done, hit "Save" at the bottom.
  • Click on the "Workflow" tab and change the state from "Draft" to "Review".
  • Logout.
  • A moderator will review your submission before it is published on the website, and may contact you or make further changes if any issues arise.
Profile photo:
  • By default, we will use your student ID photo.
  • If you want to submit a different photo (headshot only, please), please send it by email to the Graduate Program Coordinator.
  • If don't want your photo shown, or have any other questions or concerns, please contact the Graduate Program Coordinator.
