  • Migration to Canvas (Thursday, January 24, 2013)

    Southern Union State Community College is in the process of migrating from Blackboard to Instructure Canvas.  Some instructors have already made the move...others will continue to use Blackboard for Spring/Summer 2013.  By Fall 2013, all courses will be moved to the new platform.  Meanwhile, we appreciate your patience as you may have to switch back and forth if you have multiple online courses.

    The login information for Canvas is the same that you would use for student it is different from your login information for Blackboard.  Please use the link below to access the Canvas servers and email your instructor if you're not sure which platform your course is in.  Unless otherwise noted, online courses will be loaded into Blackboard for Spring/Summer 2013.

Trouble logging in?
- Have you paid for your classes? Unpaid students and students waiting for financial aid to process will not be able to log in until their registration is complete. Check with the financial aid office for more information.

- Have classes begun? Blackboard accounts are not activiated until the first day of classes for each semester. Please check the college calendar and try again after classes begin.

- It's possible that your username was duplicated in our system. If another student with a simliar name already has your username, our system would have put the number 1 at the end of yours. For example, if your username should be johmcd05, try using johmcd051 to see if that makes a difference. Your password won't change.

- Are you entering your information correctly? Be sure to use all lower-case letters with no dashes, spaces or other punctuation.
