Welcome to Northern Vermont University and the NVU Portal

The NVU portal is your entry point into your NVU email, Self Service (where you can view your financial aid award and more), Canvas, our learning management system, and more.

Once you’ve logged in at, you’ll arrive at the NVU Portal home page. Here’s what you’ll see.

Left-hand Side

Student Links: Frequently needed web pages, documents, and forms that you’ll need as an NVU student.


Announcements: Campus-specific, university-wide, and Vermont State Colleges System-wide information is posted here, including deadlines, campus closures and delays, and updates.

My Canvas Classes: Canvas is the NVU learning management system. If you take online classes, they will happen on Canvas. Many campus-based course instructors also use Canvas to post syllabi, homework assignments, announcements, and quizzes to keep you connected to the subject matter and your classmates outside of class meeting times.

Right-hand Side

Self Service: Self Service links to information that is important to you as a student. This is where you’ll view and accept your financial aid award, enter your hours if you have a campus job, and view your class schedule, grades, advisor information, and more. Click on the links to explore what Self Service has to offer!

Email: Located just below the Self Service section, the email link will give you access to your Outlook email inbox. (You may be required to enter the same username and password you used to access the portal home page to access your email.)
