Logging into Blackboard
From the College's home page, click the orange MySUNYOrange at the very top left, or go directly to http://my.sunyorange.edu
Log in with your credentials. For students, your Username is your A number, including the letter "A" in upper case.
If you have never logged on before, your initial password is the first two letters of your first name with the first letter capitalized, followed by your six-digit date of birth in the mmddyy format.
Example: Christine Smith has a birth date of August 14, 1990. Her A number is A12345678.
She would log in as follows:
- Username - A12345678
- Password - Ch081490
After you log in for the first time, you will be prompted to change your password and set up security questions.
Passwords must meet the following criteria:
-- Must be at least 8 characters long
-- Must not include "password" or "test"
-- Must not include part of your name or user name
-- Must not include a common word or commonly used sequence of characters
-- Must have at least 3 types of the following characters: Upper case, lower case, number, symbol.
