View the minimum technical requirements as a BSC Student. Be sure to review the specific information for your program, as technical requirements will vary.
When can I access my courses?
You WILL NOT see the courses you are registered for in Blackboard until the first day of class. Your instructor will make the course available when ready, and the Help Desk cannot provide early access.
* It can take 24-48 hours from Campus Connection completion for a BSC Blackboard account to be created.
What is my username and password for Blackboard?
Use your NDUS account credentials to log into Blackboard (same login/password you use for Campus Connection).
Which web browser is best for Blackboard?
CHROME is the preferred browser. Make sure your browser is up to date, usually found in the settings.
Try the Blackboard Browser Checker to see if your computer and browser are supported. Complete browser and plug-in information may be checked from your My BSC Student Resource Course after logging into Blackboard.
* Microsoft Internet Explorer is NO longer supported for use with Blackboard.
Can I take courses on my phone or tablet?
You can watch course videos on your phone or tablet, BUT you will need a computer to successfully complete your assignments and tests as many features and interactions are not compatible with mobile devices.
Can I use a Chromebook?
Chromebooks do not work with Blackboard, as many features and interactions are not compatible to successfully complete your assignments and tests. Windows or Mac-based computers should be used instead.
