How do I create a Blackboard account for an external (non-UIC) user?
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) you will need to first request an account be created for the external user and then you will need to add the new user to the course in Blackboard you want them to have access.
