How to Access Your Web Course

Students enrolled in Web classes will have accounts generated for them automatically.

The student ID will be the campus-wide student ID required to log into any computer on campus. It will normally be one’s first initial, a portion of his/her last name, and often times a number (ex: twalla13). THIS IS THE SAME ID THAT IS USED FOR THE CAMPUS EMAIL ACCOUNT. The password will be reset each semester and will be the student’s PIN (Personal Identification Number). This is usually the birthday in MMDDYY order. If the student has logged into My Northeast and changed the PIN, this will not affect your D2L Brightspace password, you must change your D2L Brightspace password from within D2L Brightspace..  

If a student ID or PIN is unknown ask the instructor or Computer Services at 423.323.3191, or email mailto:mwcollins@northeaststate.edu
