MyVWCC Tools - Faculty & Staff

MyVWCC ( is your central source for accessing essential information at your convenience. MyVWCC gives you the ability to handle a variety of tasks, such as managing your online courses, submitting requests for time off, and updating your personal information.


Blackboard is a tool used by both instructors and students to facilitate both online and in-person classes. Tutorials and help using Blackboard can be found by logging into Blackboard and selecting the Help tab. There are a number of very good Blackboard tutorials for both faculty and students found on the eLearning & Instructional Technology webpage.

Human Resource System

The Human Resource System is a subset of the Student Information System (SIS) where you can report time and absences, update your personal information, and view your payroll and benefit information.


Student Assistance & Intervention for Learning Success (SAILS) is a communication and course management system accessible through MyVWCC designed to improve student success through the use of faculty referrals for students experiencing academic challenges. Based on these referrals, students can quickly be connected with resources to support their achievement of academic and life goals.

For more information, visit the SAILS website.

Student Information System

Instructors use the Faculty Center window within SIS to access instructor-related transactions and to view their teaching schedule.  A good resource for step-by-step instructions on using SIS can be found in the faculty section of MyVWCC Help. This covers topics such as: viewing your class schedule; accessing your class roster; recording grades; viewing advisee's information; browsing the course catalog; and, viewing a schedule of classes.

You can also access SIS with your mobile device via the VWCC Mobile app.

For help with SIS, please visit MyVWCC Help.
