Access to D2L LMS Each Semester

Access to the course shell in D2L automatically occurs 25 days out from the start of the semester. Faculty are able to gain access to their shell courses at that time too. If a faculty member would like early access to their courses prior to the 25 days, they must use the Employee AskUs tool and select D2L. Then enter the request for the course name and section number. Faculty will receive an email from ITS when the course has been created--usually within 24-48 hours.
