D2L - How to Set or Reset Non-NetID Password (UW-Madison)


UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.

Users of D2L without official UW-Madison NetIDs are given what are called "visitor" accounts.

Visitor account users of D2L can set/reset their passwords directly from the Learn@UW login page. 

If you're a visitor account user, some reasons you may need to do this include:
  • You're a new user of D2L and do not yet have a password
  • You've forgotten your D2L password and need to reset it
  • You feel there's a security-related reason to change your D2L password

To set or reset your D2L visitor password:

1. Go to the D2L login page at https://learnuw.wisc.edu/.
2. Click the "Visitor Login" button.
3. Click the "I forgot my D2L Visitor password" link.


4. A screen will open asking for your username; enter it and click the Submit button. An email notification containing a password reset link will be sent to the email address associated with your D2 username.
