Canvas UserID's have changed!


Greetings from the Drake State Deans’ Office.  We, the Dean of Instruction and the Dean of Student Services, are elated to welcome you back to Drake State. We look forward to the opportunity to meet you personally and support you as you matriculate toward success at Drake State.

The Alabama Community College System has launched a statewide initiative to improve services to all students.  One key initiative of this project involves changing your current Drake State ID (D Number). This number is used to log in to BANNER and CANVAS.  Your D# will now become a new number with the letter A; hence you will now have an A#.  To retrieve your A#, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Access the Drake State website:
  2. At the top of the site, click on the BANNER link
  3. Scroll down to the center of the webpage and click on the link or click the link below in red

          New  Banner User ID (A-number) Lookup - Only works for Students applied prior to Fall 2019.

Once you have retrieved your A#, please learn it as you will no longer need your D#. 

Again, we look forward to meeting you and supporting you at Drake State. If you have questions, please feel free to call the Office of Admissions.
