If you don’t have a Blackboard account, please follow the directions below:
How do I get a Blackboard account?
All currently registered Stony Brook students have a Blackboard user account. If you registered before the first day of classes, and you are enrolled in a course that uses Blackboard, you will see the course when you log into Blackboard.
Visit http://blackboard.stonybrook.edu to access the website. You will need to know your username and password. Your username is the same as your Sparky username ("sparky" is the name of student e-mail accounts at Stony Brook); your password is your Stony Brook ID number (SOLAR number).
If you do not know your sparky username or haven't signed up for a campus account yet, visit a SINC site (Stony Brook Instructional Network Computing) for assistance. Locations include: 080 Stony Brook Union, S1460 Melville Library, 138 Educational Computing Center (ECC), or the HSC Library on Level 3.
For more assistance, click onto “Student Blackboard Help Desk” for tips and guidelines.
How do I log in to Blackboard?
You can access Blackboard from campus, from home, on the road, anywhere!
