Where to Begin

Welcome to WVU online courses. WVU Online and Extended Campus wants your distance education experience at West Virginia University to be a positive and successful one. As a distance learning student, you have access to all the support services on-campus students utilize; you also have some special support resources specifically designed for distance education students.


The majority of our undergraduate courses are delivered via a web-based course management system called WVU eCampus. Below you will find instructions for logging into eCampus.


Students will be provided a Mountaineer Information Xpress, or MIX e-mail account. Students are encouraged to check their MIX account prior to the start of the term, as your instructor will communicate with you via MIX. MIX is a web platform for WVU students and faculty. It will serve as a centralized location to register online for classes, check grades, find out about current campus events, chat online with classmates, and receive messages targeted directly to you. MIX is a digital tool to make communication easier for all members of the WVU community - both faculty and students. It is accessible from anywhere a user happens to be, at any time of the day or night.


It is important that you communicate with your instructor. If you don’t hear from him/her prior to the first day or class, it is your responsibility to e-mail your instructor. You can find your instructors e-mail address in the WVU online directory at http://directory.wvu.edu.


Whether this is your first distance learning course or you’ve participated in online courses before,  please take a few minutes and review the resources available to you.
