How do I get a D2L Brightspace account?

The university's student information system, Banner, drives D2L account creation based upon course registrations and assignments.

If you are a student

You'll receive your D2L account based upon your course registration.

When you officially register for a course in the current, in-progress semester, you'll receive your D2L account. Moments after your registration processes, Banner will direct D2L to create your account.

When you officially register for a course coming up in the next semester, you may not receive a D2L account right away. Banner does not begin sending D2L account and course information until six weeks before the start of an upcoming semester. Therefore, if the start of your first semester is more than six weeks away, you may not have a D2L account yet.

If you are faculty

You'll receive your D2L account based upon your section assignment.

When the Registrar's office assigns to you a section in the current, in-progress semester, you'll receive your D2L account. Moments after your section assignment processes, Banner will direct D2L to create your account.

When you are assigned a section in a future semester, you may not receive a D2L account right away. Banner does not begin sending D2L account and course information until six weeks before the start of an upcoming semester. Therefore, if the start of your first semester is more than six weeks away, you may not have a D2L account yet.

Can't wait? That's understandable. If you've been assigned a course section in a semester that's still more than six weeks away, please contact the IT Help Desk to request early creation of your D2L account.

If you are staff 

Regrettably, at this time Banner cannot automatically create D2L accounts for staff. If you need a D2L account, please contact the IT Help Desk to request one.
