Vulcan Information Portal
The Vulcan Information Portal, or VIP, offers easy access to the information Cal U students, faculty and staff need most.
Look for the VIP logo on the Cal U homepage.
Members of the Cal U community access VIP with a single username and password. Once they have entered VIP:
- Students can access the Desire2Learn (D2L) online learning system and their campus e-mail account, plus registration tools, class schedules, grades, financial aid and billing information.
- Faculty can access D2L, campus e-mail, schedules, grades and the Employee Self-Serve (ESS) portal.
- Staff can access the ESS portal to check pay stubs and leave balances.
- Everyone can read Cal U news and sports information, the Cal Times student newspaper and the Word of the Day. Students and faculty can customize the layout of their VIP view.
VIP is part of Banner, the world’s most widely used administration suite of applications for higher education. In addition to housing the user-friendly portal, the Banner administrative suite offers enhanced reporting and data analysis capabilities.
