What is Bio/Demo Information?
In BiONiC, Bryn Mawr stores information about you: your address, your home phone, and your emergency contacts are all examples of Bio(graphical) and Demo(graphic) information. If you ever have to change any of the following information, the Bio Form in BiONiC is the place to do it.
- Preferred Name
- Phone Numbers (cell, home)
- Home Address
- Off Campus Address (if you live off campus and it is different from your home address)
- Emergency Contacts
- Parent/Guardian Information (so they receive emails about your graduation or other college announcements)
- Tax Form Electronic Delivery (1098-T)
There are a few things you can't change yourself, including:
If you have had a legal name change or a gender change since you were admitted and you want to change that in BiONiC (which changes it on your transcript, College ID, and tax forms), see this page for more information.
