Email:

You'll also be receiving important notices throughout the school year on your student email account. It's important to check this often and clear it out so your mailbox doesn't become too full. This is our way of reaching you individually with important information about things such as financial aid. You can access your email by using the My Vol State portal. It helps you connect to online classes as well. Keep an eye on the portal page for other campus information, like stories from the Settler student newspaper. https://portal.volstate.edu
