TigerNet Online Community: My TigerNet Profile

My TigerNet Profile allows you to view and update your personal and professional information, including your photo and resume.


How do I manage the information in my profile and upload my photo and resume?
After logging into TigerNet, click on the "My Profile" link in the left-hand menu to be taken to your account.

You may upload your photo there, or click the "Manage Account" button. From "My Profile," you can select the "Edit" button to access the information in each category.

How can I control what information is displayed to the community via the TigerNet Alumni Directory?
The TigerNet Directory allows each user to control his or her own privacy settings regarding the display of information through a series of consent boxes on the "Alumni Directory View Preferences" page, which may be accessed through the "My Profile" page (available through the "My Profile" link in the left-hand menu).

On your "My Profile" page click the orange “Edit” buttons in each section. Then click the "Show/Hide" buttons next to each field to select whether that information should be visible on your profile.

NOTE: Before leaving the Edit page, be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the "Save" button there for the Hide/Unhide changes to take effect.

You may view your record as other may see it anytime by going back to your "My Profile" page and clicking the "Community Profile" button.

Is TigerNet a secure database?
TigerNet is a secure, password-protected online database owned by Princeton University and serviced through iModules. Authentication is controlled through the TigerNet Authentication System (TAS) on University servers, and the web pages are protected by an SSL Certificate. A verified University affiliation and authenticated login are required to access the information contained in TigerNet. For more information, visit our TAS fact sheet.

I have changed my last name. How do I update my record with this information? Will fellow alumni be able to search and find my entry under my old and/or new last name?
You can update this information in your TigerNet Profile or you can contact Alumni Records at alumrecs@princeton.edu. And yes, the last name search will allow fellow alumni to search through birth name, current last name and middle name to find you.

Where does the information in TigerNet come from?
The base information contained in TigerNet is data originally supplied by the University's Alumni Records. Updates made by alumni in TigerNet, or directly with Alumni Records, are synchronized nightly between Alumni Records and TigerNet.

NOTE: The Nickname field is a field specifically reserved for TigerNet. The information in this field does not come from Alumni Records, nor are your updates to this field in TigerNet sent back to Alumni Records. You will need to contact Alumni Records at alumrecs@princeton.edu to have this information updated in your Alumni Records entry.

Are changes made to My TigerNet Profile reflected in Alumni Records?
All changes made in TigerNet, with the exception of the Nickname field, will be included in your Alumni Records entry. To have your nickname updated in your Alumni Records entry, you will need to contact Alumni Records at alumrecs@princeton.edu.
