Yes, but be warned, Google has been known to filter important messages (like, from the Registrar) as junk! If you log in to http://mycourses.med.harvard.edu/, under Preferences, choose the Messaging title and scroll down to E-mail options. Here you will see you can forward emails to another account.
This is a common problem that students see on Apple and iOS devices after they change their passwords. It’s a pretty easy fix! Go to Applications>Utilities>Keychain Access. In here, you will want to delete anything and everything related to HMS accounts. Once this has been done, it’s easy to enter your new password and save this into your keychain for future use.
Unfortunately, this is something that you will have to fix from the registrar’s office down. We create accounts based off of the information that they send us. So, if something is misspelled, it’s misspelled there. Once the change has been made with the registrar’s office, we can work to fix it on our end as well.
Yes. There are two options. For full printing capabilities, you can install our printing software to your computer and print as you would from any computer on campus using a normal print dialog. We also have a web print interface available, but this would require that you upload your documents through a webpage and doesn’t allow you to choose as many options before printing. Information on both options are available here: http://projects.iq.harvard.edu/student-computing-services/printing. If you don’t want to install the client on your computer or use the web client, you can always save items to your online storage and print them from one of our workstations.
