Blackboard Emergency Maintenance

Wednesday September 13th - 6:00 AM - 7:30 AM

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

Please be advised that our Learning System (Blackboard) will be undergoing emergency system maintenance between 6:00 AM and 7:30 AM on Wednesday, September 13th.  


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 maintenance will be used to correct a critical system error with the application that handles backups and disaster recovery for the Blackboard system. While we regret the impact of this maintenance at this important time of year, our priority is to maintain the robust availability of the Blackboard system. 


Thank You


Tariq Al-idrissi

Associate Vice President, IT
