Log into D2L Brightspace

D2L Brightspace is the course management system used by all Minnesota State Schools. All web based classes are delivered to students through D2L Brightspace. Many on-campus courses also use D2L Brightspace for delivery of your course syllabus, lectures, discussion, chat and quizzes.

  • Log-in  SMSU D2L Brightspace by using your StarID and StarID password
  • Typically, D2L Brightspace information about courses can be viewed one week before the course start date. This will give you more time to take a look at the course and determine if this course fits your summer schedule. Online courses typically require at least as much (if not more) time as face to face courses. Daily attention to the course is recommended.
  • If you decide you are not going to stay in the course it your responsibility drop it before the 2nd day of the course start date. If you fail to drop the course you will be charged full tuition and fees.
