How do I create a Blackboard account for an external (non-UIC) user?
Explains how someone not affiliated with UIC can get a Blackboard account
Anyone affiliated with the University of Illinois at Chicago and having an activated UIC NetID will automatically have a blackboard account. If you need to have an account created for an external user (someone not affiliated with the University) please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For trouble logging into Blackboard, please visit one of the C-Stop consultants (available in any of the public computer labs on campus) - they have the ability to troubleshoot your common password related issues and assist you in logging in to the system. For campus C-Stop locations click here.
If you are having problems identifying the username please contact us by sending an email to email@example.com.
