Student Portal (ICON)
The Student Portal can be found on ICON (Information for Cumbria ONline) and is a tool by which you can view and amend your student record online 24 hours a day.
You can also view your current course enrolment status details, the modules you are registered for and their credit values, your module results once these have been confirmed at a University Assessment Board and any reassessment you may have. If you are registered for more than one course you will be able to view the details for each course you are registered for.
Logging into the Student Portal
You will need to have both a username and a password to log into your area in the Student Portal.
Username: this is your student number and is usually a 7 digit number.
Password: this will have been emailed to you during pre-registration. If you do not have your password or cannot remember it please use the ‘forgotten your password?’ link on the Student Portal Log-in page. Please note: this password is currently different from all your other university IT accounts (e.g. Blackboard, Webmail and Pebblepad) so please make sure it is one which you will remember easily.
Icon login page
Once logged in, if you are currently studying on more than one course you will be given a drop-down list for you to choose which course you would like to log in under and view.
Choosing which of your courses to login under
Once you’ve chosen your course and have clicked the ‘Select’ button you will see that the Student Portal consists of 2 areas, ‘My Home Page’ and ‘My Course’.
My home page
You can update your details such as your first and family names, your date of birth, your home and contact (term time) addresses, next of kin, reference numbers (eg. your National Insurance number, your Student Support number from the Student Loans Company or your nursing PIN number) and disability details, if applicable.
This allows you to view your current course enrolment status under the ‘My Course’ section and to query this if you believe it to be incorrect. You can also view all your module registrations together with any results that have been confirmed at a University Assessment Board (UAB) and any reassessment details. If you are currently studying on more than one course there is an option to switch to your other course using the ‘Switch Current Session’ button within the ‘Current Session’ section.
Once you have completed your session within the Student Portal you need to ‘Logout’ to close your session. The ‘Logout’ option is found in the top left hand side of your screen.
