  • ELMS is the online environment that supports most online courses at Maryland. The instructor must first load the course into ELMS. This occurs 24-48 hours prior to the course’s start date. If a course does not show up after login, first check that you are registered. Only students who are on the official class list can access the course. If you registered late, it may take up to 24 hours for the system to add you. If canceled for non-payment, you lose access immediately. If you are registered but the course doesn’t appear in ELMS, contact your instructor.

Types of Online Courses

  • Asynchronous: 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".

  • Hybrid or Blended: 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 or it will have a specific online meeting time. Section number begins with "HY".
