Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
Bishop State will be leaving Blackboard and switching to Canvas starting Spring 2017
What is my Username for Blackboard?The Blackboard student Username will be your seven-digit student number (nine-digit for some international students). Please note that your student number is a system-assigned number and not your social security number. If you do not know your student number you may access it using the BORIS system or contacting Admissions.
What is my Password for Blackboard?
Your Blackboard student Password will be your six-digit birthday plus the last four of your social security number. You should enter a total of ten digits for the password. For example, someone with a birthday of August 6, 1992 and a social security number of 123-45-6789 would have a password of 0806926789. International Students will use Date of Birth + last four of student number. You may change the password once you login, by clicking the My Institution tab and then Personal Information under Tools.
