How do I login mProfessor?

Why can't I log into my account?

  1. Wrong Account Name - Make sure not to append to the username. Only lastName_firstName
  2. Wrong Password - If you receive an ‘invalid username/password’ error and are sure you entered everything correctly, please check whether your password has not expired. That’s normally the case. You can access PortalGuard to check it: . It will show you password expired message if that’s the case.

What's Preferred Name change?

Batch-email to your students?

The batch email feature in mProfessor was intentionally designed to send ‘individual’ emails to each student for privacy reasons; If they want a copy of this particular email, they can cc yourself. Many professors asked whether the email has gone through and that's a best practice. In addition, the system allows only 1 single file attachment; if you wish to send multiple attachments, then you need to zip the files together and attach the zip file.

Grade Change Form

If there's an issue opening the Grade Change Form in mProfessor or it's not properly loading, try to clear all browser cache and try it again. 
Note: The "Grade Change Form" option in mProfessor is just a link to a website maintained by the Admissions and Records Department. If the issue still persists, please contact them directly!
