COVID-19 UPDATE: VIU transitioning to alternate course delivery and assessment.

In response to the evolving COVID-19 situation, Student Affairs will continue to support students in a hybrid model.

Introducing VIU Cares, a new daily Zoom chat for current students. Need to chat or connect? Have questions? Join our daily Zoom sessions for a Live Chat with VIU staff members. These sessions start April 14 and run daily from 3-4 pm. Learn more and get the link to join here: https://viu.zoom.us/my/viucares

Keeping Student Record Info Up-to-date: As correspondence between VIU employees and students is increasing, we ask all students to ensure that their email, mailing address and security passwords are up to date. For some specific services, students will need to know their security information. For example, Financial Aid will ask students to answer their security question to verify identity before conducting a phone meeting with them. To update, please log into My Student Record.
