Blackboard Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Blackboard FAQ: Email, Changing


How can I edit my email address in Blackboard?

No.  Email addresses cannot be changed by the user in Blackboard. Students' email accounts default to the NIU campus account while faculty email defaults to Groupwise. Faculty may request a one-time change to their email; students may not request email changes.


Do I have to use my campus email account?

Yes, however, faculty may petition the helpdesk to have their email address in Blackboard changed. Students must use their campus email but can set up their account to forward campus email to their preferred account. Information for forwarding campus mail is available on the ITS website.
