SPIRE Student Directory Part 2: Student Bio/Demo Information
To view student information in the Student Bio/Demo Information page, click the SPIRE main menu, then Campus Profiles, and then Student Bio/Demo Information. Enter search criteria and select a result. Please see the previous video for more info about searching the system.
The Student Bio/Demo Information page is divided into two tabs: Biographical Details and Regional. The Biographical Details tab contains the student’s personal, biographical, and contact information.
The top half of the Biographical Details tab has three sections:
‘Personal Information’ (which lists the student’s date of birth and campus id), ‘Biographical History’(which lists the student’s marital status and gender), and ‘National ID’ (which lists the the student’s country or exchange student status and national ID).
You can view the student’s primary and preferred names on the Names page, by clicking Campus Profiles in the SPIRE menu bar, then Student Contact Information, and then Names.
The bottom half of the Biographical Details tab is the Contact Information section, which consists of three categories: addresses, phone and email.
The Addresses box in the bottom left corner of the Contact Information section displays the student’s most recent active address. To view the student’s other addresses, use the navigation arrows or the View All button at the top of the Addresses box.
You can also use the Addresses page to view student addresses, by clicking ‘Campus Profiles’ in the menu bar, then ‘Student Contact Information,’ then ‘Addresses,’ and then View All Addresses.
The Phone box in the top right of the Contact Information section contains the student’s local, permanent, and sometimes work and residential hall phone numbers. In this category, the student’s preferred phone number is checked off under the ‘preferred’ column.
Lastly, the ‘Emails’ box in the bottom right of the Contact Information section lists all of the student’s email addresses on record. The student’s official IT email is listed by default as the student’s preferred email. Students can also list a secondary non-umass email as a contact information.
In some cases, non-active information might be “hidden.” Select ‘Include History’ at the bottom right of the Student Bio/Demo Information page to view hidden in-active student information.
The ‘Regional tab’ consists of the student’s ethnic background in the first half, and the student’s military history in the lower half. Military history lists the student’s military status, and whether the student is a veteran.
SPIRE users can view a student’s citizenship status by clicking Campus Profiles in the menu bar, then Student Identification, and then Citizenship/Passport. This page displays the student’s citizenship (name of country) and the student’s citizenship status (e.g. US Citizen, Permanent Resident, or International).
