Good morning All,

At the completion of your Bachelor / Master of Agricultural Science program, your ePortfolio account will transition to that of an alumni account. To retain access to your ePortfolio you will need to complete the steps in the ePortfolio access after Graduation guide. The steps in this guide should only be completed upon your official completion of the Bachelor / Master of Agricultural Science. If you intend to complete any further studies at UQ in another discipline, you are not required to complete this process at this time.
