Your Email Address in Blackboard

You can change your email address in Blackboard to your York email. You CANNOT change your Blackboard email address to any non CUNY email.
Update Blackboard Email

To change your email, log on to Blackboard, and click "Update Email" link in Tools panel on your Blackboard Home tab.  You will see your current email address in Blackboard. Type in the York email address twice correctly, and click Submit.  You should receive a confirmation message to both the email you have entered and the original one. Note: only the email in Blackboard is updated, your email address in CUNY portal or SIMS (for students) or CUNY First (for faculty/staff) will NOT be changed.

If you have not activated your York email, please contact the Help Desk at 718.262.5300 or email at
