DIY Calendar Combiner

The Office of the Registrar and Information Technology Services have partnered to create a new portal for syncing the Academic Calendar directly to an Outlook account.  Anyone with a HawkID and password can log into the system and select which Date Categories they would like to appear on their Outlook calendar.

Users can select and then deselect categories and changes will occur to their Outlook calendars approximately 1 pm the following day.
