Login Here to Access Online Courses

  • The course instructor must first load the online course into ELMS.
  • 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.
