Usernames & Passwords

D2L Login Information:

To find your NEW D2L username, log into AP Self Service, click on Personal Information, and click on View D2L Username.   Note:   You will not be able to log in to D2L until the day after you register for courses.

Your D2L password will stay the same as it was before in D2L.  If you are new to Austin Peay, then your password will be the mmddyy of birth.

Login Troubleshooting:

  1. To find your username, A-number, and email address, login to AP Self Service.  (The default username and password are your SSN and mmddyy of birth.)
  2. To find your password, click Forgot Password, enter your username, and click to retrieve your password, which will email your password to your LiveMail or Faculty Exchange/Outlook account.  (Login to AP Mail with the prefix of your email address, e.g., jdoe14, and your A-number as the default password.)
  3. You will not be able to login until the day after you register for classes with AP Self Service.  If you registered via GoArmyEd, then you will be unable to login until the day after your schedule appears in AP Self Service.  If you registered for an online course that is an R-section (e.g., R50), then you can access your course via RODP's D2L site.
  4. If you still can't login, contact Distance Education at 931-221-6625, or email the Desire2Learn Administrator at


Students will only have access to courses during the dates for the course as listed in AP Self Service (Banner).  Each course will open in the very early morning hours of the first official day of class, and each will close less than one week after the last official day of class.
