Your information and Merit
Your Merit Page was created for you by your institution in compliance with their FERPA policy, but you can control who and how people can discover your Merit page.
Adjust Search Settings:
You can adjust your search settings by checking or un-checking the option that says "Make my Merit page searchable."
If "Make my Merit page searchable." is checked, your Merit page can be found through the search feature on meritpages.com.
If "Make my Merit page searchable" is un-checked, your Merit Page will remain active, but only found by clicking a direct link, which you can provide to friends, family, and future employers.
Allow others to follow me:Your friends, family, future employers, past professors, and others can sign up to follow your Merit Page, which will send them an email update each time your Merit Page is updated. By disabling this feature, the Follow button on your Merit page will be removed.
You can adjust whether or not the follow button appears on your page by selecting or deselecting the "allow others to follow me" checkbox as shown below:
Adding and removing parent notifications
If you do not wish to have parents notified of your successes, you can delete their email address from the box. If you wish to completely disable this, uncheck the Allow my college to edit these emails box to prevent your school from accidentally adding them back to your account.
