Desire 2 Learn (D2L) is the learning management platform for Cal U.

To access Desire2Learn (D2L), you now must log in to the Vulcan Information Portal (VIP):

You can do this by going to and click Vulcan Information Portal (VIP) link on the left side of the homepage.

Here is the direct link:

Your VIP username is the first part of your CALU e-mail address.

Example: , username = abc1234

If you have not yet received your CALU email address, you should receive an email to your outside email account with directions on how to log-into your email.  You will need this information to access VIP, as your VIP password is the same that you use for your CALU e-mail address.

Once logged in to VIP, you will find the link to D2L within the Academic Info tab.
