CCA Portal

March 2017

Last updated on Jan 16, 2020

The biggest feature in Portal 0.2.06 is an upgraded and easier to user avatar editor for your Portal profile. There a number of other improvements across the system. Please see Details below.

During the Fall ‘17 registration period, we’ll be testing with a small number of students the capability to keep the Portal course planner in sync with the preferred courses list in Webadvisor. This will ensure that the new functionality is complete, easy to use, and error-free and ready to roll out in the Fall.
