myGriffith: it’s your student portal

Photo of a girl sitting on the floor with a laptop

myGriffith is the starting point for everything at Griffith. It’s your student portal which is personalised to you and can be accessed on any device, anywhere, anytime.

Here’s 3 things on the myGriffith homepage we thought you should know about:

Messages

Never miss out on official Griffith University correspondence again! Check the Messages section on the myGriffith homepage to find about, well, everything a student needs to know.

From upcoming events and workshops to system outages and networking opportunities, you’ll be notified in myGriffith Messages.

Also, be sure to check other channels of university communication, like your student email, and Griffith University social media. You’ll be a veritable fount of information!

My schedule

It’s kind of a bummer when you miss a class, an exam or key date. Wouldn’t it be super helpful if all this important stuff was listed somewhere online for you?

Well, actually it is. It’s in the My schedule section of the myGriffith homepage. It will tell you what classes you are enrolled in, when they start and where they are.

It will also let know about upcoming key dates, such as the deadline to add a course for the trimester.

My courses

Need to access your course profile? You can find a list of your enrolled courses, as well as links to the relevant course profiles, in the My courses section.

You really can’t miss it – it’s smack bang in the middle of the homepage. And if you want to find your lecture notes or course readings for the week, you can just click the Learning@Griffith link directly below My courses.

For assistance with myGriffith, check out the myGriffith Student Support page. It contains a handy user guide and support contact details.

When will my final grades be released?

grades

Will you be jumping for joy on 30 November?

Semester two officially ends this Saturday.

After months of assignments and weeks of exams, you’ll finally be able to put your books down, your feet up and your Netflix on (we missed you, old friend).

But before you can totally chill, you probably want to know how you’ve fared this semester. Whether you’ll be pleased with your pass, delighted with your distinction or happy as a clam with your high distinction, the day of reckoning is almost upon us.

Your final grades for Semester 2, 2016 will be available in myGriffith on Wednesday 30 November from 5pm. If you are a medicine or OUA student, please see the Student Administration Grades web page for further information.

The Grades web page also contains other helpful information such as assessment policy, reviewing and appealing a final grade and the grading schema.

What is the grading schema, you ask? Well, it lists all the possible grades you can receive and explains what it means.

For instance, if you get a grade of FNS for one of your subjects, you can check the grading schema to see what it means. PS it’s not good!

Best of luck!

  • Market days

We love getting out and meeting new and continuing students at the campus Market Days. Our Library and Information Services Team head to the Market Days across Griffith’s campuses to share important info and offer fantastic give aways. So remember to come visit us in the New Year with any questions or queries you have (dates coming soon)!

  • Library Shelfie

jaebin97 copyOur annual Library Shelfie comp was better than ever in 2015 with over 40 entries and some crazy creative photos that showcased just how talented Griffith’s library lovers were. The social media comp winner took home an uber-cool Apple Watch with this awesome pic. A big thanks to all our entries. We hope to see your faces, and new ones, on our Instagram next year.

 

 

 

  • Library Blog – 43,000 views and counting…

In 2015 the Library blog knocked it outta the park with more article views than seats at Brisbane’s Gabba stadium! The blog is regularly updated and aims to offer students useful Library and IT info. If there is something you’d like to know more about in 2016, comment below and we’ll do our best to keep you up-to-date!

  • Storytime at Mt Gravatt Library

Since Mt GravIMG_5092att’s story time was launched in June, we’ve had a monthly injection of cuteness on the Library Blog. From live bats to book week, the community initiative between Yarranlea Public School and the Library has been a huge success for all involved! We can’t wait to welcome the primary school kids back again in 2016.

 

  • Love My Library

The Love My Library campaign was a fantastic insight into just how much you love your library spaces and services. It also saw the beginnings of Music in the Library series that will kick-off in March next year, with 12 performances across all Griffith campuses.

Screen Shot 2015-12-17 at 3.03.49 pmArguably everyone’s favourite 2015 moment has been the launch of myGriffith the new student portal! Within only a few days of its launch thousands of Griffith students had already checked out their one-stop-shop for their timetables, course info, messages, events and of course great library resources.

 

From Friday 25 December the Library will be taking a short break. But don’t worry we’ll see you in the New Year when we’re ready to do it all again – but better!
