Student Portal – GradPlan


Student Portal

Learn about your student portal and how it benefits you.

What is a Student Portal?

Your Student Portal is your single most important gateway to completing college enrollment tasks, accessing college staff, and connecting with student services.

Here are some of the many things you can do on your student portal:

  • Register for Classes
  • View your Grades
  • Order Textbooks and Class Materials
  • View Account Holds
  • Review & Accept Financial Aid
  • Schedule Advising Appointments

Accessing Your Student Portal

You often get access to your student portal as soon as you’re admitted to a school. But, until you make a decision about which institution you’ll attend, you may need to monitor an application portal and an admitted student portal for deadlines and financial aid information for each school you are considering.

Setting Up Your Student Portal

To set up and access your portal, use the specific student ID or portal activation instructions sent from your college. Usually, there is a login website where you will set up your initial access to your portal. After your first log-in, you might be prompted to change your password from the one provided to you.


Keep track of your login information, and check your student email and student portal daily! This is almost exclusively how your institution, your professors and on-campus organizations will communicate with you, and you don’t want to miss any important notifications.


Every college’s portal is different, no matter what institution you attend. Getting familiar with your student portal may seem tedious and annoying at first, but we promise you’ll be so grateful you did as you progress throughout your college program!
