How to add tabs to MySFA

How to request and see additional information tabs in MySFA 



ITS can now give select employees additional tabs in mySFA. For example, some of the staff working in Admissions might want the Future Lumberjacks tab so that when they are on the phone with an applicant, they can see all the links & text that the applicant sees.  


This does not give access to data, merely the tab along with any text and links on the tab. For example, getting the Future Lumberjacks tab does not give you access to check admission status as an applicant can, but you can see the link and direct them to the correct location.  The different roles and the associated tabs are listed below. 

If you wish to have some of your staff with the extra tabs: 

  1. Send an email to 
    1. In the subject line put:  mySFA Tabs No Update
