How to access Blackboard Learn
Starting Monday, March 16, all in-person classes scheduled in New York campuses will resume but will be conducted online. This means that your professors will be posting instructional materials, assessments, and further guidance on our college’s learning management system, Blackboard Learn. To get guidance from your professors as to what you need to study and work on in your respective classes, you must log in to Blackboard Learn on Monday, March 16.
