Accessing Your Online Noncredit Course

FIT's online courses are hosted by Open SUNY, through the Blackboard website.

To access your course on a mobile device (Blackboard mobile app info) or to access your course on a computer, follow these instructions:

  1. Make sure that you are using an updated browser such as Firefox, Chrome, or Safari.
  2. Log in to Blackboard with your FIT user name and password*:
    Your user name is in the format of: firstname_lastname. Unless you have changed your password, your default password is your birth date in the format Mmmddyyyy. For example, if your name is Joe Smith and your birthday is April 4, 1981 then your username and password would be this:

username: joe_smith
password: Apr041981

*If it has been more than one semester since you have taken a class at FIT your password may have expired. Please contact IT (see below) to have your password reset.

3. Look for your course on the Blackboard home page. Note that courses open one week prior to the course start date.
