D2L Access - Granting Academic Advisers access to student information
Learn how to associate student D2L accounts with Academic Adviser accounts.
Before a UWM employee can be given access to student information, an account must be requested. Once the account is created, the new account must then be granted access to individual students' information. Granting access, and revoking access is done by submitting CSV files for processing. In all cases, requests are typically processed the same day.
Requesting an Academic Adviser account
To access student information as an Academic Adviser, a special D2L account must be created. Existing accounts used for instructor or student work can not be used.
An Academic Adviser account must be requested by a chair, dean, director or other administrator that deals primarily with student academic progress. Make a request by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide as much information as possible describing the need for access. The request will be reviewed by an LMS administrator.
We can not create and Academic Adviser account for the parents, relatives or guardians of students.
Once an account is created, you will receive an email notification, and you will also receive a password reset email. Once your password is set, login to D2L using the non-ePanther button from the D2L webiste.
Granting an Academic Adviser access to students' information
Access changes are submitted by sending an email with an attached CSV file to email@example.com. The CSV file lists the students that the Academic Adviser account should be able to view. Create an Excel spreadsheet, then save a CSV file with the following columns:
- Column 1: CREATE
- Column 2: Username of the Academic Adviser account
- Column 3: Student ePantherID
Removing Academic Adviser access to students' information
Like granting access, removing access is submitted by sending an email with an attached CSV file to firstname.lastname@example.org. The file lists the students to revoke access to. Alternatively, it can describe removing access to all students.
Create an Excel spreadsheet, and then save a CSV file with the following columns:
- Column 1: REMOVE
- Column 2: Username of the Academic Aviser account
- Column 3: Student ePantherID, or an asterisk (*) to revoke access to all students
