Desire2Learn (D2L) is an online management system designed for online courses and face-to-face courses with an online component.

D2L allows access to:

  • Course related files
  • Electronic drop boxes for assignments
  • Online quizzes and tests
  • Email and grades 

The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is transitioning from D2L to our new learning environment, Canvas. We will be using Canvas fully by Fall 2019; however, this 2018-19 academic year, you may have one or more classes in either system.  Please refer to your course syllabus to determine if Canvas or D2L will be used for that course. Students may access D2L/Canvas at: https://www.uwlax.edu/info/log-on-to-learn/

 

Get your student ID (Eagle ID) expanding section

 

The Eagle ID Card is UW-La Crosse's official ID Card. It is University policy that all students and staff have an official University ID Card. This card can be obtained and replaced at the Card Office at 1131 Student Union. For your first card please bring some form of identification with you. This could be a driver's license, state issued ID, passport, military ID, permanent resident alien card, non-immigrant visa, certificate of U.S. naturalization, or Mexican consular card.

Use your Eagle ID to vote?

You can use your Eagle ID (with proof of enrollment) to vote in Wisconsin!  If you plan to use your Eagle ID to vote, it must contain:

  • Issued date
  • Voter Expiration date is no later than two years after the Issue Date (even if the Voter Expiration date has expired)
  • Your signature is on the back of your Eagle ID card
  • Eagle ID card must be accompanied by a separate document that proves enrollment

Ensure the ‘Issued’ date is within two years of the ‘Voter Expiration’ date. Below are some examples:

  1. When the ‘Issued’ date is 3/1/16 and the ‘Voter Expiration’ date is 3/1/18, your card is valid to use as a voter ID.
  2. When the ‘Issued’ date is 3/1/17 and the ‘Voter Expiration’ date is 5/1/19, your card is not valid as a voter ID your card because the ‘Voter Expiration’ date is not within two years of the ‘Issued’ date.

Your Eagle ID does NOT register you to vote. Please refer to Wisconsin Elections Commission website for more information about proof of residence: https://elections.wi.gov/voters/first-time or https://elections.wi.gov/publications/voter-guides/proof-of-residence

Refer to Wisconsin Voter FAQ: https://www.wisconsinvote.org/faq

Your Eagle ID does not expire for campus use.

Wisconsin residents can still use their Driver’s License to vote. Out-of-state students voting in La Crosse can use their Eagle ID and proof of enrollment. Review additional voter ID info at: https://www.bringitwisconsin.com/
