Registrar offers swift support and self-service on new portal

Joining other university services on the Service at Northeastern platform, the Office of the Registrar has launched a self-service portal to help students get support quickly and efficiently.

On the new portal, request updates to names and other personal details, degree verifications, notarization, and other registrar-related transactions and support. Then, easily track the status of those submitted requests through the portal. Next up, in early September, the Registrar plans to launch a knowledge base of helpful articles addressing common requests on the portal.

Now loading… pronouns in Teams

Referring to someone by their correct pronoun is a simple way to show respect for each other and to build an inclusive environment. The option to add pronouns to Northeastern profiles is coming this month and is a perfect way to make pronouns visible to the rest of the Northeastern community in Teams and Outlook. Once this feature is live, add or change your preferred pronouns in Microsoft 365 for others to see. It’s completely optional. You may also add pronouns to your email signature and Zoom profile.
