System Announcements

  • System Migration Announcement (Thursday, October 8, 2015)

    Please bear with us as we migrate from one version of Blackboard to another. Due to the length of time it takes to archive and restore a set of courses/organizations there may be times when courses/organizations may not be available. We have tried to minimize the impact to the faculty and students. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank your for your patience.

    Please access the LEGACY SERVER for:
     - Courses prior to Summer 2013
     - Most Organizations and Non-Credit Courses

    The following courses will NOT be available from October 5-23, 2015 due to course migration
     - Summer I (May 26 - July 3, 2015)
     - Twelve Week Summer Session (May 26 - August 13, 2015)

  • When is Blackboard out of service?

Blackboard will typically be available during these times. If maintenance is expected, it will be advertised in advance.

Email address

You can’t use the “I didn’t get the email” excuse! Be sure to update your email address by going to the Manage Email Address Tool and checking what is entered in the Official Rutgers Email Address field. Your email address will be updated in Blackboard by noon the next business day. It is also recommended that you verify any delivery email addresses (where you want your email delivered) and alias email addresses (the address that you give people to use to contact you) on that same page.
