Powering Your Achievement

At WVU Online you’re supported every step of the way. From enrollment coaches to academic advisors to a state-of-the-art learning environment, we want to ensure that you have the tools to meet your academic goals.

The majority of our courses are delivered via a web-based course management system called WVU eCampus.

To register for classes, check grades, find out about current campus events, and receive messages you’ll use WVU Portal. WVU Portal is accessible from anywhere you are, at any time of the day or night. You are encouraged to check the Portal email system, called MIX, prior to the start of the term, as your instructor will communicate with you via MIX. You will find instructions for accessing MIX email in the New Student Orientation Manual.

It is important that you communicate with your instructor. If you don’t hear from him/her prior to the first day of class, it is your responsibility to email your instructor. You can find his/her email address in the WVU online directory when you sign into the WVU Portal.

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