Internet Explorer 11.0 or greater
Firefox: 31.0 or greater (stable release channel)
Chrome: 36.0 or greater

Safari: 6.0 or greater (Mac version only)

Both PC and Mac users should install Firefox and/or Chrome in addition to their default browser. This ensures that all users have two Blackboard compatible browsers to provide an alternative option, should a technical issue arise.


Later versions of Internet Explorer (Windows) and Safari (Mac) are Blackboard supported, but it is our recommendation to use Firefox or Chrome for a better user experience.

New User Information:

Blackboard courses will not be available to students until the Friday before the course start date, in the afternoon. If you are a new student and can't access Blackboard, you may not have an account created yet. Once your Blackboard account has been created, you will receive an email with access information.
