The Comments feature is how faculty (your Advisor and Major and Minor department chairpersons) will approve student forms and essays.
As a reminder:
- General Study Plan needs to be approved by: Advisor and Major Department Chairperson
- Major/Minor Checklist needs to be approved by: Major Department Chairperson
- All three essays need to be approved by: Advisor
In order to approve the forms and essays, the faculty advisors and Chairpersons must first be added as a viewer to student ePortfolios. Then, when the faculty member logs into their own ePortfolio account, the student Portfolio will appear on the faculty member's homepage. Faculty will navigate to the appropriate page and then click on “Show Comments and Tags." Advisors/Chairpersons should enter their Comments in the text box (e.g., I approve, or Needs work) and then click on “Leave your Comment” to save.
