key Alerts:

After logon, at the top left of the screen below the banner, are Alerts. There are five categories of Alerts: Emergency, Enrollment, Financial Aid, and Fees and Payments.

An Emergency Alert will first appear on your homepage as a large box in the middle of your screen. The box will contain the nature of the emergency. After your review, you may x-out of the box, but the Alert will continue to display until the alert is no longer active or has been resolved.

The other Alerts are informational and specific to your individual circumstance. All alerts will display on the left top side of the portal; however, you may click on the arrow_lefticon and it will collapse. Likewise, click on the iconright arrow , and the left side will reappear into your page.

   
padlock Spotlights:

A Spotlight is an "illustrated highlight" of a campus event / issue / etc. The Spotlight consists of three thumbnails, each with its own larger image. The larger image is linked to a webpage. When you click on the image, the portal displays the associated web page.

   
padlock Portlets:

Portlets are applications within R'Web. There are portlets that are defaulted to R'Web because they contain valuable and pertinent tools and links relevant to the student population. Other portlets are optional and can be added to your homepage to accessing the tab "add to homepage".

Note: Some portlets may contain links that open in their own windows. Please disable your browser pop-up blocker when using R'Web.
