Attention Faculty and Students: There will be a scheduled Blackboard upgrade to take place beginning December 23, 2014 at 12:00 am EST. Blackboard will be unavailable for 24 hours. Please plan accordingly and we apologize for any inconvenience.
All current students have been enrolled in the new Student Orientation Course in Blackboard. This is a free, optional resource for all students that can be completed on your own schedule. You can complete the entire course in about an hour, or refer to only the sections you need as a refresher.
