New Students

Dear Incoming Student,

Congratulations on your acceptance and welcome to Florida Coastal School of Law! We know that you are probably excited and anxious about the journey you are about to begin. Before you can get started, you will need to have a Coastal e-mail account. Instructions for setting up your account can be found at the Account Self-Service Portal (ASSP) website by visiting Account Self Service Portal and then choosing "I am a New Student." Once you have set up your Coastal Law account, you can access e-mail, wireless, lab computers, and print. Your Coastal Law account number is also known as a "C-number" (i.e. C123456) and is part of your e-mail address (i.e. c123456@law.fcsl.edu). Please write your C-number down so that you don't forget it. Once you have your Student ID, it will be printed on that.

To help ease some of the stress, and to introduce you to important information, we’ve created an orientation web course on Desire2Learn (D2L), our Learning Management System (LMS). Please see the D2L section below for more information about this system.

Some of the systems you need to be familiar with are listed below, along with the username and password you will need to use to log into them. Please note: E-mail, D2L, Wireless and the Lab Computers use a separate account than the CampusVue/Student Portal system.
