To access your class located within the Halo | Learn system, navigate to the GCU Student Portal and click the link for your course. You should be signed into your class automatically. Alternatively, you can access the login page using the direct link:
If you choose to go directly to Halo rather than use the Student Portal, you'll be asked to log in. After navigating to the login page, select Sign In With Microsoft and then log in with your GCU email address and the same password used on the Student Portal.
After logging in, you will see a list of all your courses. Press Go to Class to access a specific course.
FAQs and Errors
If you are taking multiple courses through GCU at the same time, you may need to switch between the courses. To switch to another course, select My Classes in the upper left corner and then choose the course you would like to access.
Some users may have multiple Microsoft accounts. For example, if a faculty member is also taking classes as a student, they will have both a faculty and student account in Halo.
If this scenario applies to you, you may encounter an issue when logging out of Halo with one account and trying to log in with another. After clicking, “Logout” from the upper right corner of Halo, you will be taken to a page with a Sign in With Microsoft button.
Upon clicking this button, you may be automatically logged back into Halo using the same account you just logged out of, rather than being provided an option to enter a different email address. This occurs because your browser remembers your previous login information and enters it automatically. If you need to log in using a different account, you have a few different options:
- Access Halo using an incognito or private browsing tab. See General Brower Troubleshooting for assistance with this process if needed.
- Use a different browser for each account type
- Navigate to office.com and sign out of your active Microsoft session. After doing so, we recommend clearing cache and cookies to prevent that account from being auto logged in again.
This may occur for two reasons. One reason is if there is a network issue that prevents the Halo platform from loading. Make sure that you have a working internet connection, and ensure you are not using a work network from your employer as this may trigger the issue. In other instances, there may be an issue with a class that does not have a faculty assigned to it, which may be due to a scheduling error.
