Blackboard Account Request


Blackboard accounts may be requested for individuals without a University ID.  These are typically guest lecturers who would like to participate in discussion boards, content evaluators from other institutions, or collaborators using Blackboard for non-academic courses.

Standard Services and Features

Once the form is received, a username and password will be generated and emailed to the requestor.  Instructors are then able to enroll that user into courses through the standard process.

SLA:  You can expect this service to be completed in 2 business days.


Only Faculty or Staff are approved to request new Blackboard accounts. 

Instructors need to keep FERPA guidelines in mind when enrolling users.  Only approved individuals should be able to see grade data within the course.


The requestor is responsible for communicating the login information to the specified individual.  That individual should then be instructed to change their password.

If you are requesting 5 or more accounts, please call the Technology Support Center, 812-237-2910, option #2.  We will provide you with an excel template to submit.
