Alumni Access Information

An example of the announcement can be found below:

Good morning All,

At the completion of your Master of Dietetics Studies, 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 Master of Dietetics Studies. If you intend to complete any further studies at UQ in another discipline, you are not required to complete this process at this time.

If you have any questions or problems with the process please contact the AskUs team in the library.
