One Stop

The University of Minnesota's One Stop gives students online access to information and services such as grades, financial aid, libraries, career resources, and forms. The One Stop student services telephone number is 612-624-1111. Callers have the option to press 1 to speak directly with a One Stop counselor.

U Card

All students registered at the University receive an ID number and a U Card. The U Card is the University's student ID card. Besides functioning as a photo ID, the U Card allows access to many University services and privileges, including libraries and discounts on local concerts, plays, athletic events, computers, and software. U Cards can be used as student keys to University facilities and can also function as a debit card allowing students to make purchases on campus. Please note that access to some University services (e.g., the recreational center) requires the payment of additional fees.

A U Card is a photo ID and must be obtained in person. Please call 612-626-9900 or check out the U Card information page for office locations and times. Be prepared to present a driver's license. U Cards cannot be issued if there are holds on a student's academic record. Students needing to replace a lost or stolen U Card will be assessed a fee.

Transcripts

Grades are reported on University of Minnesota transcripts issued by the Office of the Registrar. Students may obtain an unofficial transcript (in person) at 200 Fraser Hall at no cost. Official transcripts may be obtained by sending a written or fax request. For further information, call 612-624-1111 or 624-4115 (recorded message with instructions). One stop provides instructions on obtaining unofficial or official transcripts. See Registration and Grades for more information.

Students with a "hold" on their record will not be able to obtain a grade report or transcript until the "hold" is removed. See Academic Holds for more information.

Libraries

The University of Minnesota's library system ranks 17th in size among American universities. Students have access to the library system once they have obtained their U Cards. The system offers a full range of reference and information services.

The library also offers online access to IEEE publications.

Career Services

SE students have access to the Institute of Technology's Career Center for Science & Engineering (612-624-4090).

In general, students in UMSEC's programs are not eligible to participate in the Student Health Benefit Plan. The only exception to this policy relates to international students enrolled in the program either on (1) student visas or (2) H visas and whose employers do not provide health insurance coverage. These international students are mandated to participate in the Student Health Benefit Plan. For these students, the cost of participation is included in the comprehensive fee.

International students with H visas and who have health insurance through their employers are exempted from the mandate. If these students receive an insurance bill from Boynton or have a health insurance hold on their records, they should contact the program support staff immediately. (Click here for the staff directory.) Given proof of employer-provided insurance, Boynton will issue an exemption form.
