The Comments feature is how faculty (your Advisor and Major and Minor department chairpersons) will approve your 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 your forms and essays, the appropriate person must first be added as a viewer to your ePortfolio. Then, when they log into their own ePortfolio account, your Portfolio will appear on their homepage. They will navigate to the appropriate page and then click on “Show Comments and Tags." Your Advisor/Chairperson should enter their Comments in the text box (e.g., I approve, or Needs work) and then click on “Leave your Comment” to save.
Depending on how you have set up your Comments (click here and scroll down to bottom of page for info), you may need to approve the comments added by your Advisor/Chairperson.
