How do I update my Student Profile?
As an eCornell student, you have two different student profiles.
  1. Your Student Portal's profile is where you log in to:
    • update your password
    • update your email address
    • download letters of completion
    • print certificates or receipts, etc.
    • This profile is private and will not be seen by anyone other than eCornell staff. To update this profile, please follow the first set of instructions below.
  2. Course profile: If you'd like to add more information about yourself to share with your classmates and / or facilitator, please follow the second set of instructions on updating your course profile.
