How to Access Online Courses

Access Online Courses Website

  • The course instructor must first load the online course into ELMS (Electronic Learning Management System that supports most online courses at UMD).
  • This may not occur earlier than 24-48 hours prior to the course start date. Some course instructors may wait until the first day of class.
  • Only students who are registered and on the official class list can access the course.
  • If you register late, it may take up to 24 hours for ELMS to give online access. If canceled for non-payment, you’ll lose access immediately.

Types of Online Courses


  • Student is NOT required to login at a specific time. An asynchronous course will only have this notation: Class time/details on ELMS. Section number begins with "WB".


  • Student is required to login at a specific time. A synchronous course will indicate this information either within the course description or list a specific online meeting time. Section number begins with "WB".


  • Student is required to attend class meetings or exams on campus as well as to participate in an online element. This online element will have the notation Class time/details on ELMS (meaning that the instructor will let you know) or it will have a specific online meeting time. Section number begins with "HY".
