Updates and Announcements
The annual Fall Blackboard upgrade is scheduled to take place beginning on Sunday, Dec. 27th and is expected to be completed by 5 pm on Monday, Dec. 28th. This maintenance upgrade will not introduce new features or functionality into Blackboard, but following the upgrade use of the Blackboard Virtual Chat and Classroom tools will be discontinued. Unfortunately, the system will be unavailable during this time. We encourage faculty to submit Fall semester grades as early as possible due to the downtime.
