Logging into the BC Blackboard Course Server
In order to access a Blackboard account, you must have a functioning BC user account and be able to open the Web browser and login to BC Blackboard Server. New students need to fill up an "Application to Access the Network and Web" to have the account officially created. If you are a registered new student and don't have a Blackboard account, you should visit the IT Help Desk as soon as possible. The IT Helpdesk is located at the main floor in Talbott Hall.
If you need the application form, you can download it on the Web, and print it out. You can deliver or fax the completed form back to the Helpdesk. Fax number for the Help Desk is 973-748-3682. If you have questions call the Helpdesk (dial extension 224 on campus).
