FAQs for Students

There can be a number of reasons that your course does not appear in D2L.

  1. Always check UAccess to make sure that you are enrolled at the UA (or have not been dropped from the course).
  2. Most courses are hidden until the first day of classes. If you have questions about the course, please contact the instructor or wait for the course to open.
  3. You can collapse the semester heading by clicking on it, causing your courses to "disappear". Please make sure you semester has been expanded. 
  4. If other members of the course can see it, but you still do not have access, please contact us at and we will make sure you get into your course.
