Where is MyCE?

The MyCE page is a record of your CE history with VIN/VSPN CE. It can be used to:

  • Review the list of classes you have taken, classes you are currently taking, and upcoming classes to which you are enrolled.
  • Access the course page for any current or archived course.
  • Verify the credits earned for each class.
  • View, save, or print a course CE certificate.

MyCE can be found in the upper left corner of the CE portal page (http://www.vin.com/CE/).

In order to access your CE records, you will need to login to either VIN or VSPN. Use the login link provided in the MyCE area (indicated by the red arrow below):

MyCE

MyCE includes four panels: Previous Courses, Current Courses, Upcoming Courses, and Non VIN Courses.
The panels provide the following information for each course listed:

COLUMN    DEFINITION
Year The year in which the course was taken.
Course Code The 12 character alphanumeric course code.
Course Title     The course title.
Credits The credit value of the course.
Certificate Either PENDING, N/A, NONE, or an icon that acts as a link to the course certificate (a PDF document). For more information, refer to Understanding MyCE Certificate Status
Site URL This is a link that takes you to the course area.
Since you "logged in" to get to MyCE, you are still logged in for anything pertaining to your course (such as accessing the course area). However, when you use the Site URL link, please make sure that the course area main page says "Welcome (your name) to (name of course)."
