Update Your Profile and View Transcript

In this new Learning Management System (LMS) it is possible to update your profile with a picture as well as maintain other information you have been asked to update.

If you’re in the DHS HR system, most of the information is maintained for you and will be locked. If this information is inaccurate please contact your supervisor to make changes.

You can reach your profile by selecting your name in the menu bar at the upper left of the screen. In the pulldown select the Profile option.

The Course Details section of the page will list all the courses you are enrolled in. These are not links to the courses. Selecting these links will open extra sections if there are deadlines, sessions, or events that are available inside of that particular course.
