Students: The university allows you to manage the public visibility of your directory information at Restrict My Info. Restriction of the following attributes will affect the UTSOA website:

  • Restrict major: This will prevent you from displaying on the Students page of your UTSOA program.
  • Restrict classification: This will prevent your visibility as a "Graduate" or "Undergraduate" student.
  • Restrict email: This will prevent your email address from displaying.
  • Restrict school: This will prevent you from having a UTSOA website account and profile.

We have also implemented two additional settings for Students and Alumni:

  • Your profile will not appear on the website by default. Student employees will not have the option to keep their profile off of the site.
    • Use the checkbox at the top of the Profile Editor to enable/disable your profile's public status. Remember to click 'save' at the bottom after making changes!
       
  • Your email address will not appear on the website by default.
