Five College and Amherst students can request temporary Moodle access to courses. Moodle sites contain important course information, as well as Zoom links for courses meeting online. 

Improvements for January and Spring 2021: students following the steps below can now get Moodle access within three hours of adding a course in ACData. See Sync Times section for more info.

Important note: this process adds students to Moodle sites as a "Petitioner". Petitioners are removed from Moodle after Add/Drop. This process does not register you for a course- be sure to follow up with the Registrar for your official registration!
