How to use Internet Explorer Compatibility Mode:

If you need to view a WVU application that is not compatible with your installed version of Internet Explorer, refer to Microsoft's Fix site display problems with Compatibility View page.

Near the top-right corner, click the drop-down arrow and select your version of Internet Explorer. Please note that this page is informational and is not guaranteed to work for WVU applications.
