We have been working to strengthen and improve mySwarthmore’s design to be more accessible, user-friendly, and mobile-friendly, making this tool easier to use and more secure. The updated mySwarthmore experience, launching Fall 2022, brings a new look and feel to the site, while offering the same functionality.
- Mobile-first design that will make mySwarthmore easier to access, anywhere.
- Clean, user-friendly, and accessible interface to help you easily find what you’re looking for.
- Greater security for your data, on and off campus.
- Two notable changes:
- Direct Deposit information is now located under the Main Menu, under General Information
- Update your Personal Pronoun and Gender Identification under Main Menu -> General Information -> Personal Information
The updated mySwarthmore is designed to be intuitive to use and easy to navigate. Should you need more support, you can find resources for using mySwarthmore on the ITS Knowledgebase or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a training session with your department.
Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the url to access the new mySwarthmore?
- What are the layout and navigation changes in the new version of mySwarthmore?
Responsive design makes this new version of mySwarthmore accessible no matter what device you use to access.
For example, in the new version there is a main navigation bar that displays at the top (the number of items in your display may be different depending on the access you have).
Below this main navigation bar, there are options that are presented as tiles (in the prior version, all of these options were presented as menus). These tiles allow for the page to be accessible on various devices, such as desktops with large monitors, laptops with smaller screens, tablets, mobile phones, etc. When a tile is clicked, it will take you to either a sub-tile selection page or a page where you are able to view your desired information or take related action(s).
