On Friday we launched the new and improved myUMBC Profile. A long time in the making, and with much work left to do, the Profile is part of our effort to streamline access to UMBC information about you.
Currently, little bits of information about you are spread throughout myUMBC and in different systems around campus. We've designed the profile to act as a summary view for information from these various systems, organized in a straightforward way, while providing a way to review this information at a glance and with easy access to change things without needing to know which systems are responsible for which info. All of this is packaged in a updated design that is designed to be just at usable on your phone as it is your desktop.
Currently, the profile contains information about names, addresses, and contact info. We are working to get information about degree progress, courses, grades, billing, financial aid, and more into this new format. Expect to see new features added over time.
From a technical perspective, this is an important launch as its the first UMBC service to be hosted using Amazon Web Services. This will allow us to easily scale the service around peak load in order to keep myUMBC fast and more reliable.
To access your profile, select Profile under your name in the upper-right corner of myUMBC or View the New Profile.
We hope you like what you see, but we'd love to hear any comments you have for us.
