This page applies to students.
Each student, faculty, and staff member has a Crusader e-mail account. The university uses this account to communicate important information with you; be sure to check it often.
Make sure to empty your deleted messages box every few weeks so your mailbox does not get too full. If your mailbox is full, you will not be able to receive any emails. If you are having problems receiving email, make sure your mailbox is not full before calling the helpdesk.
The Student Portal is an information web site that provides students with access to their information, course schedules, degree audit, transcripts, billing, financial aid, online documents, course content, grades, and more. Use your Crusader ID and password to log in.
My Grades:The My Grades page shows mid-term and final grades for each term. Grades will not be mailed.
Use your Crusader ID and password to log into university computers. Computers are available in the Hester Memorial Library and computer labs in Donnan (PC), Crain (PC), Runion (MAC), and Tingle (MAC). There are also computers in the Writing Center and Language Laboratory in Brissie.
Hester Memorial Library provides a number of research databases. These databases are available to students, faculty, staff, and alumni. On campus access is automatic and requires no login or setup.
Blackboard is an online course management system. Professors may use Blackboard exclusively in online classes or to supplement traditional class assignments. Use your Crusader ID to gain access. Although the initial log in information is the same, your Blackboard password can be changed independently from your e-mail account. Unless you registered late, your Blackboard account should be ready the first day of classes. If your class is not showing in Blackboard, contact your teacher to make sure he or she has made the class available to all students before you contact the help desk. For technical assistance, please contact the Help Desk. Training and tutorials are available here. These tutorials can walk you through the basics needed for most courses using Blackboard. Questions about classes and assignments should be directed to your professor.
