Getting Started

Getting started with your online program is as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Email
    Access to important information and official university communication is through your Marquette email address. You can access your email through the Office 365 portal. You will need your Marquette email address and password.
  1. CheckMarq
    CheckMarq is the student information system that you will use to register for classes, view class schedules, grades and transcripts as well as access financial and other academic information. The Student Guide to CheckMarq provides instructions to login and navigate CheckMarq. Login with username and password.
  1. Online Courses
    Marquette's e-Learning application Desire2Learn (D2L) is a web-based tool, which facilitates and supports online education. Each course at Marquette has its own D2L course site with facilities for interactive communication, secure submission of student assignments to faculty, and online quizzes. Login with username and password.

It may be helpful for you to watch the D2L Navigation Overview (PLEASE NOTE: D2L and Brightspace are one-in-the-same; same tool with different names.) before you get started in your course.

Additional D2L demonstration videos are available on the Troubleshooting page. If questions remain after reviewing the resources provided, please contact Adult & Distance Education at or call (414) 288-3155.
