Access Your Course

FIT's online courses are hosted by Open SUNY, through the Blackboard website. To access your course on a mobile device, use the Blackboard mobile app. To access your course on a computer, follow these instructions: 

  1. Make sure that you are using up-to-date browsers 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
  3. You will see your courses listed on the Blackboard home page one week prior to the course start date.

    New students: if you aren't able to log in to Blackboard, you may need to log in to the MyFIT Portal first in order to activate your login credentials. If you aren't able to log in to MyFIT either, contact IT (see below).

If you experience problems logging in to Blackboard, please contact IT for FIT in room C307A, or by calling 212 217.HELP (4357) or emailing
