Your Campus Computing ID

Your CCID is your main portal to accessing an abundance of campus resources. Created using a combination of your first and last name, your CCID provides access to applications like Bear Tracks, Email & Apps, and more.

You will receive your Campus Computing ID (CCID) via email within 3-5 days of registration.

Your Registration Confirmation

Your course Fee Assessment contains your class information: dates, textbook details, classroom location (note that not all courses take place at Enterprise Square), and receipt of payment. You will be able to access it through your student account on Bear Tracks (Financials > Fee Assessment > select the term and the course) once you receive your Campus Computing ID (CCID) via email.

Bear Tracks

Bear Tracks is the University of Alberta’s online service that provides students, applicants, employees, and instructors access to their personal information in a safe and secure manner. This includes financial information, class fee assessments/confirmations, tuition tax receipts, grades, and allows you to update your personal information.

Please see the user guide and additional resources.

Access Bear Tracks

University Email Correspondence

We use the email account to communicate important information and notices about your studies. 

You will be automatically assigned a email account as soon as you register in your first course at Extension

All administrative communications will be sent to your email, including:  
  • registration confirmation 
  • course work communication and messages from instructors 
  • grade notifications (if you have set the notification function in Bear Tracks) 
  • other important news and announcements about your program and classes

eClass Orientation

Faculty of Extension learners in fully online or blended courses use eClass, the University of Alberta’s eLearning management tool, to access their course content and connect with fellow learners and instructors.

If you are new to online learning, please consider participating in the eClass Essentials.

Additional information can be found on the Learning Engagement Office (LEO) Website.

Bring Your Own Device

The faculty’s new Open Doors classroom space (2nd floor Enterprise Square) is Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) enabled. BYOD means that you can bring your own portable technology (laptop, netbook, tablet, or smartphone) and connect to the internet via the campus WiFi.

BYOD will enable you to use your own device to conduct research, take notes, and pursue topics that are part of your courses. Using your own device means working with a familiar device and one you can continue working on once at home or at work. You will also be able to collaborate with fellow students outside our learning spaces.

Campus WiFi

  • network name: ‘UWS’
  • log in with your CCID and password
Charging Your Devices

It is best to come with your device fully charged. If your device needs charging, there are numerous electrical outlets within the corridors of the Open Doors central areas, including USB outlets, distributed throughout the student spaces. Remember to bring your power cord.

You can charge your device before class, at lunch, or during breaks. Please do not leave devices unattended at any time.

Safety is a priority at the University of Alberta. Phones left on the floor or power cords hanging from tables are tripping hazards, so charging will not be allowed during class time.

Some of our courses are computer assisted

These courses include computer-based activities, and you may need to download software in advance of the course start date to maximize your learning. If you plan on using your own device, ensure that the course-required software is loaded and your device is charged before coming to class.

Not bringing your own device?

Designated courses will have access to the Faculty of Extension's suite of 20 laptops for students attending class without their own devices.

ONEcard for access to campus services

ONEcard is available to students who are enrolled in a program (optional; fee applies)
