Approximately two weeks before the first day of class at KU Medical Center, you will receive one of three emails depending on your current KUMC student status:
  1. If this is your first course through KUMC, a new account will be created.  You will receive an initial email from tlt@kumc.edu with instructions on how to open a secure email, followed by the secure email which will provide your login instructions and the title of the course(s) you are enrolled in.
  2. If you have taken a course through KUMC and your account is still active, usually having taken a course within the past year, you will receive an email from tlt@kumc.edu informing you of the course(s) you are enrolled in, your username, and who to contact if you forgot your password.
  3. If you have taken a course through KUMC before and it has been a year or longer, your account will most likely need to be reactivated.  You will receive a secure email from accountmanagement@kumc.edu with your login instructions.

Not only have I had the opportunity to learn from their distinct experiences and individual perspectives related to development, but there are classmates that I now consider to be friends and have even had the privilege of meeting in person.
