If you are registered for next semester, you must wait 1 month before the semester starts and then you can log into Blackboard. At that time, you'll be able to access the Blackboard Online Student Orientation. You will not be able to access your actual courses until the first day of classes. During this one month period, you should go through the online orientation so that you can be familiar with Blackboard in preparation for your classes to start.

Every student who is registered will automatically be issued a Blackboard (Bb) account that follows this format:

Username: 32_900XXXXXX (student ID number)

Password: 32_900XXXXXX (same as your username)

 

Step 1: Click to watch this video. 

Step 2: Go to the the Bb website and log in: https://gwinnetttech.blackboard.com

Step 3: Change your Bb password after you log in.

 

On the login screen, type in your username and password.

Click on "change password."

 

Type in a new password and verify it by retyping it againg. Click "submit" when you're done.
