How Do I Access Universal Class?

  1. From our home page, select eResources A-Z, then Universal Class. When accessing outside the library, you will need to enter your library card number and password to continue.
  2. Click on ‘Register Now’ if a new user or ‘Sign in’ if you already have a UC account.
  3. Once you find a course you want to take, click on it to view more information. You’ll see how many lessons, how many exams and assignments, average time to take the course, how many Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) the course offers, and whether a video audit is available. Video-audit mode is for learners wanting to review courses without assignments, tests, or certification. Learners starting a video-audit course may switch over to the CEU course at any time.

We will be teaching a class on Universal Class and LinkedIn Learning at 10 a.m. on May 21, 2024 at the Central Library (registration required).

Happy Learning! For assistance with this, or any other library resource, please give us a call at 970-243-4442, email us at, or visit any of our 8 library locations in Mesa County.
