If you've signed in to the MyUCSC portal recently, you may have noticed some big changes.

MyUCSC is the online system that provides a variety of services for students, faculty, and staff, including the ability to enroll in classes, check grades, and view student information. During the Fourth of July weekend, Academic Information Systems (AIS) upgraded MyUCSC to implement some improvements and new features for students, faculty, and staff.

MyUCSC now has an updated look and feel, as well as some new tools that should help save you time and make things easier.

The new MyUCSC features for faculty include the Faculty Center, where faculty can enter grades, download class rosters, and view their weekly teaching schedules, all on the same page. The process for downloading class and grade rosters has also been streamlined, and now takes only one click. Additionally, faculty can easily email some or all of the students in their classes directly from the roster view.

For students, MyUCSC now offers the Student Center, where students can search for and enroll in classes, as well as view grades, holds, and financial information, all in one convenient location. Class Search has been redesigned so that students can search for and enroll in classes directly in MyUCSC. Another new feature for students is My Planner, where students can browse the Course Catalog and track courses for future enrollment.

Advising staff will notice some improvements to View My Advisees, via access to the new Student Center, where they can look up and update student information, including declarations, checklists, and holds. The process for updating class and section limits is also improved. And all staff will be able to use the one-click download button for any grid of data in the system.
