Brightspace Support Resources for Students

Advisement

The Academic Advisement Center supports the use of a variety of advising models; including proactive, prescriptive, developmental, and appreciative advising to support all phases of a student’s academic journey. In addition, we provide registration support to all undergraduate students that are not enrolled in special programs (ex; SEEK, ACE Program). We invite you to explore your educational plan via DegreeWorks and make appointments with your assigned advisor via Navigate.

Blackboard (till the end of Spring 2024) and Brightspace (starting in Summer 2024)

The Center for Teaching, Learning and Educational Technologies (CTLET) provides support for using technologies to improve teaching and learning. We developed a self-paced short course Be Ready for Bb for you to learn Bb. If you complete it, you will obtain a certificate! You can also learn how to set up your Bb account and use different Bb tools on our Blackboard for Students site. 

When you encounter issues with Bb, you can reach us through any of the following channels:
