button on the lower part of the screen.

First time logging in?

The first time you access eClass, you'll be prompted to confirm your email address. Once you've entered your email we'll send you a quick email to that address. You'll need to follow the instructions in that email to confirm and then you'll be all set up to receive announcements from eClass. If you do not confirm your email address you will get stuck on your profile page until the confirmation link sent to that email is clicked. 

Find your course

On the top of the eClass site, you will see a couple of menu options. Click on the My courses text, this will take you to a new page with a list of all your courses on eClass that have been made available to you.

To enter a course click on the title.

Not seeing all your courses?

There are a few reasons you might not see the list of courses you are expecting to see.

Your course isn't available to you yet


We use authorative information on 'who's teaching what' from our Academic Resource Management System (ARMS). Once you've been assigned to teach a course there, you will be added to your course automatically. 


While many courses use eClass, some Instructors may choose to not use eClass and some may have chosen not to make it available to you just yet, choosing to make it available for the first day of that class. It's best to check with your Instructor to find out if there is a eClass course available to you.

You've recently switched your courses or section

If you've recently added a course or switched sections please allow up to 24 hours for it to appear in your list of courses.
