BeachBoard is the university learning management system powered by Desire2Learn. 

Getting Started


  • Each semester a course is created in BeachBoard for every course in the schedule of classes, and the instructor of the course has the option to activate the BeachBoard course for their students. 
  • BeachBoard courses have remained available to the instructor for five semesters, and then they are archived. 
  • If an instructor would like to view an older course, they can request access via an online form.  Click this link for the archived course request form.
  • Instructors are encouraged to export their gradebook and courses for personal record retention purposes.   
  • The students will no longer be able to view their BeachBoard courses approximately four weeks after final grades have been posted by the instructor to MyCSULB.
  • If a student would like to view an older course, they must request access from the instructor of the course.
  • BeachBoard is currently on version 9.4.
