Powering Student Achievement
WVU Online wants your distance learning experience at West Virginia University to be a positive and successful one. As a distance learning student, you have access to support services that on-campus students utilize; you also have some special support resources specifically designed for distance learning students. Because online students pay different tuitions and fees than traditional on-campus students, students enrolled in online programs do not have access to many on-campus services such as the student recreation center, the PRT, or free tickets to athletic events.
WVU Online supports our distance learners every step of the way. With academic life coaches to a state-of-the-art learning environment, we have the tools necessary to help students meet their academic goals.
The majority of WVU Online courses are delivered via a web-based learning management system called WVU eCampus. WVU eCampus allows WVU to deliver the highest quality educational experience to students, and it is integrated with the WVU STAR/Banner system so that students are automatically registered for their online courses.
To register for classes, check grades, find out about current campus events, or receive messages, students use the WVU Portal. WVU Portal is accessible from anywhere, at any time. Students are encouraged to check the Portal email system, MIX, prior to the start of each term as that is the primary communication tool for instructors. Remember, it is important to communicate with instructors. It is the student’s responsibility to email his/her instructor when necessary. Email addresses can be found in the WVU online directory.
WVU Online strives to help students achieve academic success. If at any time guidance or assistance is needed, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
