Frequently Asked Questions

How do I access D2L?

Help, I can't log in to D2L!

  • Log into D2L using your UA NetID. If you experience problems logging in with your UA NetID, please contact 24/7 IT Support.

How do I find my classes?

I'm registered for a class in UAccess, but my course doesn't appear in D2L!

  • Courses activate automatically 1 week prior to the class start date. However, Instructors can deactivate classes during this time in order to work on them. Please contact your Instructor and they will be able to let you know when they plan to activate their site.

My name doesn't appear correctly in D2L!

  • To update a name in D2L, you'll want to change your Preferred Name in UAccess (under Personal Information) to the correct first, middle (if necessary) and last name. This is the information that comes over to D2L. More information on naming at the UA can be found here.
