The WVU Portal, a new mobile-friendly application at portal.wvu.edu, will soon give current WVU students and newly admitted students a single front door to a variety of critical services and applications, from accessing eCampus, Gmail and STAR to checking the status of the PRT. The app goes live Monday, Dec. 7.
Portal.wvu.edu is replacing mix.wvu.edu at the end of the fall 2015 semester, and users will automatically be redirected to the new site through the end of the spring 2016 semester. MIX email will NOT be going away; it will remain accessible through portal.wvu.edu.
Targeted messages will NOT be sent through the WVU Portal as they were in MIX. However, departments should continue to work with University Relations-Digital Services to send those messages using new tools.
The WVU Portal provides many new features in an attractive, intuitive interface that Information Technology Services designed with input from a number of student groups over the past several months. Through one “front door,” students can: check grades and course content; check their student account balances; access DegreeWorks; view academic and athletic calendars; and access other WVU resources.
Faculty and advisors also will be able to access the new portal (see attachment) but will see content directed specifically to them. Most instructors and advisors will NOT see the same information as student. However, an instructor who is also a student will be able to see both views by clicking on the menu. The app will automatically default to the student role.
