Blackboard Login Information

Your username is your first initial, middle initial, and last name followed by the last two digits of your student ID number (This number is not your SSN). So, if your name is John B. Doe and your student ID is 112233445, your username will be jbdoe45 (all lower case - no spaces).

 Your password will be your student ID number (do not include the dash). This is not your SSN but rather your NWOSU student ID number. You will need to change your password when you login to Blackboard to protect the security of your account. To do this, select Personal Information from the menu and then select Change Password.

Please review the Online Testing Tips before attempting an exam on Blackboard.
