If all else fails, Check of these 10 Steps...

Remember cim computer doesn't use your mysite/blackboard password, it uses studentID

10. Firewall settings too high - disable your firewall.

9. Are you sure they registered in the course officially?

8. Check Your MySite's class lists? (Click computer icon next to your class to automatically login to blackboard)

7. If in class and no blackbaord access, did you just register? If so wait a day. else Professor may need to make course available using mysite

6. Are you using Blackboard - hee hee, just wanted to see if you're paying attention ;O)

5. Make sure you don't use a personal email to login (such as yahoo or hotmail or gmail) to login to blackboard. All usernames are your Saddleback username.

4. This seems to be the new trend - students either use their full email address - not just their email user name - as their login name. It's a good practice to clarify their user names in an orientation.

7. Sometimes students change their passwords and can't remember. On Campus Students with Email/MySite problems should contact John McCotter in Village4.
Off Campus Students with email problems contact scdestudent@saddleback.edu

8. Married / divorced students that change their names often cause issues because they're trying to use their "other" name to log into the system not realizing that's the reason they can't get in.

9.. Students that add the class late or are new to BB sometimes take 24 to 48 hours to populate into the systems

  2. Navigate to Change PIN/Password Option (left hand navigation bar)
  3. Click Link Change Password
