Editing Personal Information

1. 👤 Student Profile options

Student ID

Your Student ID is often determined by your school and will display on your profile.

Note: You are not able to change your Student ID. Please contact your instructor or support if you need to update this value. Visit 👉 Getting Support for details on contacting support.

ADA Multiplier

If your instructor has set an ADA multiplier for you, it will be visible here. The ADA Multiplier automatically extends the amount of time available for any assignment with a timer. If you believe that you should have an ADA multiplier set but do not see it here, consult your instructor.

High-Contrast theme

You can enable an alternate color scheme which enhances the contrast throughout SIMnet, and tends to be more forgiving on the eyes for our visually impaired students.

Third party offers

Third party offers such as the Microsoft Office Specialist Exam Voucher will appear on the left side of your profile to indicate that your instructor believes you are ready to become certified in a particular piece of the Microsoft Office Suite.

2. 👩🎨 Change personal information

Note: Your school may have disabled the ability to modify your personal information.

First name, last name

Your first and last name appear in two separate text boxes on the main part of the page. If either one has been misspelled, you can change that information here.

Email

The email associated with your account will display next to your name. Ensure that it is spelled correctly so that the necessary information will be sent to the right place. SIMnet requires your email address so we can help you reset your password and so your instructors can communicate with you through the 👉 Message Center.
