Blackboard recommends that you change your password periodically to ensure security. Do not use common personal information as your password, such as your name.

Your institution may not allow you to change your password through Blackboard Learn. Because Blackboard Learn often shares data with other systems on campus, such as the registrar's office, it may be necessary to ensure that your information is the same everywhere. In this case, your institution will have a different way to change your information. To learn more, please contact your institution.

  1. From the global navigation menu, click Settings and select Personal Information. You can also access PersonalInformation on the Tools panel.
  2. On the Personal Information page, select Change Password.
  3. On the Change Password page, type a new password for the account. The password must be at least one character and contain no spaces. Passwords can contain a maximum of 32 characters.
  4. Type the password again to ensure accuracy.
  5. Click Submit.
