Blackboard upgrade is currently scheduled to begin on Thursday, December 28th at 12:30 am and to be completed by the close of business on Friday, December 29th. Blackboard will be taken offline and there will be no access to the environment during the upgrade.
Additionally, we have been notified that Turnitin will be unavailable due to maintenance on Wednesday, December 27th between 11 am and 8 pm. No assignment submissions or grading will be possible through any Turnitin services during this time. We therefore advise that Turnitin grading be done prior to the 27th. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

As we have noted in various communications, the forthcoming mid-spring implementation of CUNYfirst Campus Solutions will have many run-on effects. The discontinuation of our Banner system as our local authoritative data source and system of record for all student-related processing – in favor of the CUNYfirst Campus Solutions system – will of necessity be accompanied by an alignment of many IT-related processes with this new central authoritative system of record.
We will continue to send specific messages to various constituencies alerting them to such impacts. But we will share one such change more broadly, as an example.
Effective with the implementation of CUNYfirst Campus Solutions:

We are pleased to announce that starting Thursday, August 24, 2017, all GC students will have access to web printing. Students can send from any device and location a document to be printed, and can then retrieve and print the document on-site from any of our print release stations located in the GC Library.
In order to use web printing, students will need to execute a one-time registration using their Office 365 email accounts (i.e. email@example.com) at the following web link https://siteup.ocsinc.ca/site/register.
Web printing is available only for students and is supported by GC Student Technology Fee funds. For more details, please be sure to read carefully our posted Student Web Printing FAQs

Please review the following announcement from the CUNY Central Office Blackboard administrator:
We wrote to you at the beginning of the summer semester regarding the transitioning of Blackboard login credentials to the new CUNY Login credentials. You will access Blackboard from the same login points you currently use.
If you have an Employee ID (EMPL ID) in CUNYfirst, the new credentials will be your CUNYfirst username followed by @login.cuny.edu and your CUNYfirst password. For example, if you log into CUNYfirst as george.washington76, you will log into Blackboard as firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not sure if you have an EMPL ID click here
to register as a New User then log into Blackboard.
If you do not have an EMPL ID, continue using your CUNY Portal credentials followed by @login.cuny.edu and your CUNY Portal password. Avoid changing your password if necessary. The new password will not be affiliated with the account when trying to access Blackboard. If you are unable to access Blackboard, send an email to email@example.com and provide your CUNY Portal username, Banner ID and a screen shot of the error message. A ticket will be open for a team member to assist you.
