myUMES is a web portal. A portal is, very broadly, a gateway, and that is what myUMES aims to be - your gateway to web based services within and beyond the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.
myUMES differs from a simple web page of links however, because it uses a combination of security, personalization and customization to offer more flexibility and integration.
myUMES will not just present you with access to the services you already use from one central location, but also go a step further and help you discover other services that are either new, or that you just didn't realize were available. In addition, while some services and resources are just simply linked to myUMES, other services interact dynamically; for example displaying your current Course Schedule, or your current grades.
