Online Access to MIX and WVU eCampus
MIX Account E-mail
Mountaineer Information Express (MIX) is a web portal for accessing services at WVU. Instructors in this program sometimes distribute information about each course prior to or at the beginning of the semester via students’ MIX accounts.

If the letter did not include this information or has not yet arrived, please contact the Division of Extended Learning at 800-253-2762×1 (if a distance education student) or the Office of Admissions and Records at 304-293-2124 (if a campus-based student).
Within STAR, students can locate their email address and user ID as follows:

WVU email address is displayed in upper right hand corner of email window (Ex: If email address is firstname.lastname@example.org then user name is abaker).
