I'm registered. Now what?
Before the semester, make sure you can...
Log in to Blackboard. You'll need a CUNY Portal username and password. If you've never entered the system before, you must first activate your account.
Courses don't become visible in Blackboard until instructors activate them, so you may not see your course listed right away. Wait until the day after you register for a course, as it may not appear in Blackboard for 24 hours.
Access your Lehman e-mail account. This is the address configured for you in Blackboard. Most professors will use this address by default when initiating communication with students.
Take care of both these logon issues early to avoid frustration and delays at the start of the semester. For assistance, contact the IT Center Help Desk, Carman 108, 718-960-1111.
Once the semester begins...
Attend your initial course meeting.
If your course won't be holding a meeting, log in at the beginning of the semester or contact your professor by e-mail.
Read carefully all course information, including the syllabus.
Plan your schedule. Figure out how to make your online coursework fit into your schedule. Block out at least nine hours a week for a three-credit course.
