eCourseware - Spring Tune-up
As we continue to make improvements to eCourseware beginning April 21, 2017, there will be new changes made to the system.
Shorten Your Wait!
Your courses in eCourseware will no longer take 24-48 hours to be available! Yep, you read that right! You asked and we listened. Faculty and students will be able to access their courses shortly after they register or have been assigned a course during the semester's enrollment period.
