Your Blackboard student username should be first initial, middle initial and last name. (Sometimes there is a number after the last name for a common last name)
Initial starting passwords for ALL systems are the same – Uppercase first initial, lowercase last initial, birthdate in mm/dd/yy format followed by the last digit of the zip code.
Example: John M. Smith with a birthdate of 1/12/1997 and a zip code of 12345
