Why can't I log in to Blackboard (New UIC User)?

If you cannot log into Blackboard and you are new to UIC, it is likely that a password has not yet been set for your UIC NetID. For students, this is commonly done during orientation.

To set your password for the first time, please go to it.uic.edu/tech-helpdesk to book an appointment for assistance with the Technical Helpdesk.

Note: This must be done in person and you must present a valid i-Card.

After setting your password, your Blackboard account normally gets automatically created. However, if you still have an issue, you should follow these steps to manually create a Blackboard account:

1. Go to https://accountportal.uic.edu/
Create an ACCC account screen

2. Log in with your NetID and password.
Password create

3. Select "Blackboard" from list of accounts
Your accounts screen

4. Click "Create account".
Create account button
If you continue to have an issue creating the Blackboard account as instructed above, email: consult@uic.edu
