How to Access Blackboard
At Burlington County College

If you are a student taking a Fall 2014 online, hybrid or web enhanced course and you have taken any course(s) that used Blackboard at BCC in 2013 or previously in 2014, you may continue using your existing account and your Fall course(s) will appear automatically on the day they are scheduled to begin.

New accounts for students who did NOT take courses in Blackboard during 2013 or earlier in 2014 will be created shortly before the start of the semester; therefore you will not be able to log in until August 28th in the late afternoon, or two business days after you register, whichever is later.

Students who did not take courses in Blackboard in 2013 or previously in 2014 must use the instructions below to login.

Step-by-step Login Procedure

  1. Go to http://bcc.blackboard.com/
    Troubleshooting tip: If you do not see a BCC logo above the username and password box you may be at the wrong site - please try again! Do not bookmark the Blackboard username and password screen unless you follow our special bookmark instructions. Instead, write down the bcc.blackboard.com address or print out this page.

  2. If you receive any security warnings read them carefully and use your best judgement in accepting what makes the most sense to you
    Troubleshooting tip: We strongly recommend that you have and run anti-virus software whenever you are on the Internet. Also, using a compatible or certified web browser will provide the best experience in your online course.

  3. Type your Blackboard User name in the space provided
    Your Blackboard User name is the same as your WebAdvisor User ID and your MyMail Username. For most BCC students this is your first name followed by an "underscore" (underline character) and your last name. For example, a student named John Brown would have a user ID of 'john_brown' (without the quotes).
    Troubleshooting tip: Try visiting the WebAdvisor FAQ page or the MyMail FAQ page for more information on BCC usernames.


  4. Type your Password in the space provided
    Passwords are reset periodically! Your initial Blackboard password is the date-of-birth BCC has on file for you in MMDDYY format with no punctuation and no spaces. For example, a student born on Jan, 1, 2001 would have an initial Password of '010101' (without the quotes) and a student born on November 25, 1976 would have an initial password '112576' (without the quotes).
    Troubleshooting tip: Try visiting the WebAdvisor FAQ page for more information on BCC passwords.


  5. Click the Login button. You will be taken to the BCC eLearning page
    The first time you log into Blackboard you will use your birthdate as your initial login and you must change your password immediately. This is very important! Changing your Blackboard password does not change your password on other BCC systems. We also recommend that you investigate the "Personal Information" and "Privacy Options" settings available from the My Places area.


  6. Click your name near the top right-hand corner of the screen
    Then click Settings near the bottom of the drop-down menu and select the "Personal Information" link then "Change Password" - enter a new password twice then click the Submit button to create your personal, self-selected password. You will use your own self-selected password for the rest of the semester. Do not forget your self-selected password! On every login thereafter you will be taken directly to your BCC eLearning page.
    Troubleshooting tip: In case you ever forget your password you can have a temporary password sent to your BCC e-mail address by using the "Forgot Your Password?" link from the Blackboard entry page, by using your BCC e-mail address and this link, you can get your password reset 24/7, automatically.


  7. After changing your password, retrun to the BCC eLearning page and click on the course title to enter your course(s)
    Troubleshooting tip: If the semester has not yet begun, or has ended, you will not be able to access any courses.
