Technology Update: Your YVC email is changing

At the end of the Winter Quarter,  YVC student email addresses will be updated in preparation for a change in how you’ll log into Canvas. Please log into the YVC Student Portal beginning March 25, 2022, to get your new YVC student email.

How to get your YVC email

  1. Go to the YVC Student Portal
  2. Click on “Show Student Info” below your name
  3. Look for your YVC email in the information displayed (it will appear below your home address)


  1. Go to our Student Email Look-up page
  2. Enter your student ID and birthdate

When will this change happen?
Your new YVC student email address should be available beginning on March 25, 2022.

Why do you need your YVC student email?
Later this academic year, you’ll need to begin using your YVC student email to log into Canvas. More information about when this change will happen will be shared later in Winter Quarter. In the meantime, you’ll continue to use your Student ID number to log into Canvas.

What is Canvas?
Canvas is our course management system that you’ll use to log in for courses.

How do you log into your YVC student email?
Use the Office Portal to access all the Office 365 Apps including your email. Log in with your student email and you will be redirected to another page where you will log in with your email address and Student PIN. Detailed instructions about how to log into student email and other Office 365 apps are available on the Help Desk website.

What happens to the existing messages in my current YVC student email?
Any messages in your current YVC email inbox will be deleted when your email address is updated. Please make sure to transfer any emails in your current inbox by March 18, 2022, otherwise, they will be deleted and will not be recoverable. You will want to communicate with others that contact you via this existing email to stop using the email address as of March 18, 2022.  Additionally, if you use this email as a login or username you will want to update that information when you get your new YVC email address.

Will this affect how you log into the Student Portal?
No, you will continue using your Student ID number to log into the Student Portal.

Where can I get help if I have trouble logging into my student email?
