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.
