Account Setup & Login Issues Overview
In order to use Blackboard, you must have a blackboard username and password. Though your log-in information for Blackboard's (campus.fsu.edu) and myFSU (my.fsu.edu) systems will most likely be the same, these are two different systems: You will not be able to access Blackboard unless you have a blackboard account, even if you already have an FSUID.
Keep in Mind
- New student Blackboard accounts can take up to 48 hours to be created after FSUID activation
- Log-in recommendations: Log-in to Blackboard directly through campus.fsu.edu. Make sure to manually type in your username and password (do not use auto-fill options) with no spaces before and/or after your username in order to avoid log in errors.
- If you are not a student, faculty, or staff member, you will need to create a guest/visitor FSUID before requesting a Blackboard account
- Cyber security: See the ITS department's tips for keeping your accounts secure
