You've actually already used the my.ucmerced.edu student portal
- it's where you submitted your Statement of Intent to Register (SIR). The portal is an important resource that you'll use throughout your time at UC Merced, and now is no exception. At my.ucmerced.edu
, you can find updated, secure, 24-hour access to comprehensive information about Financial Aid, Admissions, registration, records and more.
Student services found in your portal:
You were provided with a UC Merced email address when you submitted your SIR. It's important that you check your UC Merced email, because that is where we send important information. Once you've logged in to the portal
, you can access your email by clicking on the WebMail tab at the top of the page.
You can opt to forward University email communications to a different account. If you do so, it is your responsibility to ensure that all information sent to your official University-assigned email account, including attachments, is properly forwarded to that other email account.
The fine print:
Student Email Account Responsibilities:
Pursuant to campus policy, all UC Merced students are responsible for taking the following actions:
Acceptable Use Policy:
Activating their university-assigned email account, preferably upon expressing their intent to register or as soon thereafter as possible
Accessing all information sent to their university-assigned email account
Managing their university-assigned computing and email accounts
The first time you logged in to the my.ucmerced.edu student portal, you were asked to read and agree to the terms of the Information Technology Resources Acceptable Use Policy. In case you didn't read the terms before checking the box, we'd like to remind you that you are required to abide by all associated state and federal laws and adhere to University policies when connected to the UC Merced network, or when using any of the University's network-based tools and resources. Although we recommend you review the terms at the link above, here is a highlight of the items you should be most aware of: No illegal sharing of copyrighted or licensed materials, no unauthorized use of University systems, no stalking, no spamming, and no use of University network resources for commercial gain.
