How do I enroll in my professor's
LexisNexis Web Course?
If your professor has set the course to self enrollment you can click on
Browse Course Catalog from the right hand side of the Courses tab where
it says Browse Course Catalog. Locate the course and then click on the
Enroll button. If your professor has chosen not to use self enrollment
then it means the professor will add you to the class and it will show
up when you log into LexisNexis Web Courses under the Courses tab.
How do I access a course which I have enrolled?
Once you have been enrolled in a course either by your instructor or by
self enrollment the course(s) that you are enrolled in will show under
the My Courses box which appears under the Web Courses tab
which is your home page immediately after you
log into Web Courses. Course(s) you are enrolled in appears beneath the
label Courses in which you are enrolled. Hyperlinks will appear for each
course. By clicking on the hyperlink for the course you wish to enter,
you will open up that particular course. You may also access and

or one of the instructors of the course to get the access code.
I have changed schools since last year. Will my LexisNexis ID from
the school I attended last year work?
Even though your LexisNexis ID may work from your previous school to do
research with, you will need to obtain a new LexisNexis ID from your
current school and register it. This will ensure that when you choose to
Browse Course Catalog that you will see only the courses that are being
currently offered at the school you are attending.
When I try to enroll in a course after going into Browse Course
Catalog, either I don't see an Enroll button or I get an error message
telling me the course is not available. Why?
If the Enroll button is not showing up it is either because the
enrollment period set by the instructor has passed or the instructor has
not turned on the Enroll button. If you are getting a message indicating
the course is not available, then the instructor has not made the course
available. Please contact your instructor.
Can I email other students in my class?
Yes, unless the instructor has disabled e-mail in the course, you should
be able to email any other individual in your course through LexisNexis
Web Courses Communication, Send E-mail feature. You may also use the Web
Courses Messaging feature. Simply select Messages and click on New
