Transfer Students

Welcome! In the left column, find links to your Class Facebook, your Class News, a list of your Classmates, and the Transfer Student Blog.

You also have a set of personal pages on Amherst's site:

Your Personal Portal for Announcements and Course Information

After you log in, you'll be taken to your personal portal, where you can see campus announcements and resources related to courses you are taking. You can also use your portal to subscribe to any news source that provides an RSS feed.

Your Profile and Photo


After you log in, you'll see a link to "My profile." On that page, you will be able to upload a photo of yourself, which will appear in your Class Facebook and on the class roster pages of the courses you're enrolled in. No one without an Amherst password will be able to see your photograph. To see how to upload your photo, watch this brief video.

Your Personal Website

After you log in, you will see a link to "My website." This is your own personal homepage, where you can post photos and news about yourself. Other students may write comments on your page (unless you decide to turn the comments off). Note that your homepage is by default visible to the outside world, so if you'd like to make it visible to students only, or everyone on campus only, you must change your settings.
