Important FERPA Reminder to All Faculty Members:  Because Blackboard houses student records and grades, never use your default password to access Blackboard.  Change your password immediately and routinely to protect the confidentiality of student information (as FERPA requires).  See the directions below to change your password in Blackboard or view the recorded tutorial.  Please ensure compliance with this very important request.  Also, never email grades or send grade reports from Blackboard out via email.

All students enrolled in a Lawson State course are expected to access their Blackboard course. To enter Blackboard, Click on the "Login to Blackboard" icon below.
