Take a Tour of the New MySUNYOrange

SUNY Orange's revamped version of MySUNYOrange has been live for nearly two weeks. The new MySUNY Orange serves as your entry point to the College’s online resources, including email, announcements, student accounts in Banner and the Angel learning management system, among others.

We encourage students to log into MySUNYOrange and explore the tabs and links in order to get a feel for where items are located. By the time the Fall semester begins in late August, many student-support items that now appear on the College web site will be moved to a location inside MySUNYOrange.

You can access MySUNYOrange directly from the College web site. Once you have successfully signed in, you will automatically be directed to your own personalized home page. It is important to know that much of the information presented to you within MySUNYOrange will be based upon your role at the College. Defined roles include student, faculty, employee, advisor, et cetera.

On your MySUNYOrange home page, you will find personalized alerts sent to you by the College, a snapshot of your five most recent emails, Grapevine announcements, the day’s events at the College, and a searchable directory of faculty and staff.

In the top right portion of the page, you will find graphics links to Gmail, Banner and Angel. These graphics appear in this same location on all MySUNYOrange tabs in order to help you more easily reach these resources at any point during your visit to MySUNYOrange.

There are FOUR student-related tabs, including Student Academics, Student Services and Resources, Student Finances and the Library. On these tabs, students will see windows that draw personalized records from within the Banner system as well as links to critical resources to most student services offered by the College.

For example, students can access their student profile and graded on the Academics tab ... career, internship and tutorial information on the Resources tab ... and account, financial aid and payment information on the Finances tab.

The “Library” tab is available to all students and employees. It features handy links to information about borrowing books, arranging interlibrary loans, photocopying and using library computers. There is also an “Ask the Librarian” window that links users to a librarian through the Library’s existing chat feature. There is also a link to “faculty resources” that can assist faculty members in suggesting relevant book titles or help them utilize other library offerings.

All users will also see a Help/Support tab where they can locate support links, key College phone numbers and search boxes for the College directory and the SUNY Orange web site.

Students are also encouraged to provide feedback about their new MySUNYOrange experiences by using the form located on the "Feedback" tab.

We hope you enjoy the new look and feel of MySUNYOrange.
