Northeast State Community College - We're here to get you there

Adjunct faculty email accounts and Desire to Learn (D2L) are important communication links between instructor and students, division offices, and the administrative offices of the College.


Each adjunct faculty member is required to have a Northeast State e-mail account. If you do not have a computer account you will be asked to fill out the Request for Use of Technology (Computer Account Request) Network Access and E-mail Form. You will be able to access your Northeast State e-mail account away from the campus on any computer that has Internet access by visiting the Faculty and Staff page and selecting Outlook Web Access. Your Northeast State email account and your D2L account should be used for communicating with students via email. Email is to be used for Northeast State professional purposes. Policy 04:09:00

  • Please check your institutional email often so that you do not miss important date sensitive information.
  • Please keep your Deleted Items folder emptied out. Your Deleted Items folder will continue to use up your limited space on the server unless emptied.


Many students are accustomed to using Desire to Learn (D2L) course management system for retrieving information from their instructors and receiving e-mails regarding their class(es). D2L e-mail is a closed system and is only accessible between student and instructor. The D2L email system is not the same as your institutional ( email account. It is important that you utilize D2L. To reset D2L accounts or if you have questions regarding D2L, contact Mike Collins at 423.212.3552 or email at

Student Access to Adjunct Faculty

Each adjunct instructor should provide students with a preferred method of contacting them. Methods of communication may include campus mail, D2L e-mail, telephone, and conferences.
