What is “The Rock”?

“The Rock” (also called the portal) is a one-stop connection to Desire2Learn, essential information, resources, and to access your final course grades.  All Red Rocks students have access to “The Rock” (portal) after successfully being enrolled in courses.   Students log in to the “The Rock” using the same information you use to access D2L (S Number and Password). 

Are you logging into “The Rock” for the first time?  

The first time you log in to the “The Rock” you will use your S number and your date of birth as the password. (ex: March 16, 1980 would be 031680).
