A student portal is an online portal that includes all of the information and access to services that students need, according to Chalmers University of Technology. However, the exact information and services that are included in a student portal can vary based on the specific school.

Examples of information included in the student portal for Chalmers University of Technology are deadlines to sign up for exams, dates that exams are held, semester registration information and courses the student is currently taking. A student or parent portal offered at a high school, such as the one offered by Miami-Dade County Public Schools, may also have information for parents, including grades and attendance records.
