Remember to make sure you can sign in!
Once you receive an email notification that you have been enrolled in a course, it is important to make sure that you are able to log in to all required systems. Keep in mind that it may take up to 24 hours before your account is set up to sign in. You should also make sure that you can still log in to Schoology the week before classes begin, but remember, courses may not be visible in Schoology until the day classes start.
For Dual Enrollment Colegia users: If you are currently attending one of our affiliate schools and already a Colegia user, you should use your existing Colegia account to login and access resources. You should begin receiving email notifications from Doral College directly to your existing Colegia email account in order to streamline your access to information about your studies with DC. Don't forget to add the Doral College - Schoology and Maestro apps for single sign on access to your college courses and student records.
For new Colegia users: If you do not have an existing Colegia account, login to https://new.colegia.org. Once accepted to the college you should have received an email that provides you with your username. The username is your first initial - last name - 4 numbers (JSmith1234). You will use YourUsername@doral.edu and your temporary password to login to Colegia which will be your birthdate, first initial, and last initial in the following format: DDMMYYYYfl. When you first log in, Colegia will prompt you to reset your password and establish security questions.
You will now have the ability to log in to https://new.colegia.org where you will find a variety of useful applications that you can utilize. Please ensure that you click on the Apps Menu on the left-hand side of the screen to search for "Doral College" and click the small plus icon to add both the MaestroSIS and Schoology apps to your dashboard. Additionally, you can click on the email icon at the top right side of the dashboard to navigate to your email. These apps will allow you to sign directly in to MaestroSIS (for student records) and Schoology (to view course content and complete assignments). You can add other Apps from the menu that interest you as well.
Schoology: What is it?
Schoology is our learning management system where all official Doral College course content is offered. This makes it the primary system for students and instructors to interact with courses and content.

Why is it important?
This is where you will turn in assignments and where you can access many other tools such as LIRN (the Library), Smarthinking (Tutoring), and Knewton (STEM courseware). This is also considered a communication hub and announcements as well as instructor communications will be available through this system. Schoology is where instructors grade assignment and maintain student grades throughout the course.
How do I use it?
Schoology can be accessed directly through the Doral College - Schoology app in Colegia. Just click on "Apps" on the left-hand menu and search for "Doral College". Click the + icon at the top right corner of the apps to add them to your dashboard.
