Students: Courses will be open in eCampus three days before start date in STAR

Starting with the spring 2018 semester, eCampus courses will be open three calendar days before the official start date identified in STAR (Banner). This means students will be able to see if their instructors have posted any reading material or messages before the first day of class. Whether such content exists will vary with the instructor.

Information Technology Services has made this change at the request of the Faculty Senate Executive Committee. Some instructors want to encourage students to prepare for the first day of class. 

This change will also allow students to connect sooner with classmates. Instructors also will be able to start discussions and email students from within the eCampus system without waiting for the first class.

Please direct any questions or concerns to the ITS Service Desk at 304-293-4444 or ITSHelp@mail.wvu.edu.
