Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

Please be advised that our Learning System (Blackboard) will be undergoing system maintenance between 11:59 PM Tuesday, August 29th and 3:00 AM on Wednesday August 30th. 


For the duration of the outage, the Blackboard system will be completely unavailable.  Users will be unable to access any Blackboard courses, take or submit assessments or post files.


This update will be used to install routine OS updates to the back-end Blackboard infrastructure. There will be no changes to the application as a result of this maintenance.
