Returning to Blackboard?

Please use your SDSU Web Portal Login and Web Portal Password to access Blackboard.

Finding Your Courses

When you log into Blackboard you will automatically be taken to the My SDSU page. Your Blackboard courses will be listed under the My Courses box. Clicking on the name of the course will take you to the course site. Not all of your courses may be listed in the My Courses box. It takes up to 24 hours from the time your enrollment is official for the Blackboard database to be updated. Also, not every instructor on campus is using Blackboard with their course. Only those courses where instructors choose to use Blackboard will be listed in the My Courses box.
