  • New CUNY Login: To Access Blackboard

    Please review the following announcement from the CUNY Central Office Blackboard administrator:

    We wrote to you at the beginning of the summer semester regarding the transitioning of Blackboard login credentials to the new CUNY Login credentials. You will access Blackboard from the same login points you currently use.

    If you have an Employee ID (EMPL ID) in CUNYfirst, the new credentials will be your CUNYfirst username followed by @login.cuny.edu and your CUNYfirst password. For example, if you log into CUNYfirst as george.washington76, you will log into Blackboard as george.washington76@login.cuny.edu. If you are not sure if you have an EMPL ID click here to register as a New User then log into Blackboard.

    If you do not have an EMPL ID, continue using your CUNY Portal credentials followed by @login.cuny.edu and your CUNY Portal password. Avoid changing your password if necessary. The new password will not be affiliated with the account when trying to access Blackboard. If you are unable to access Blackboard, send an email to itservices@gc.cuny.edu and provide your CUNY Portal username, Banner ID and a screen shot of the error message. A ticket will be open for a team member to assist you.

  • Changes to the GC Remote Computing Environment

    Attention GC students and faculty,
     
    With the establishment now (by CUNY central office CIS) of the University-wide CUNY Virtual Desktop platform for accessing a variety of software applications remotely, a resource being funded by the campuses collectively via a central-office charge-back process, the GC Student Tech Fee Committee has voted to discontinue funding additionally the GC’s Remote Computing platform, which has provided a similar opportunity (albeit on a much less grand scale).
     
    Access to application software via the GC Remote Computing environment will therefore be discontinued when the associated contractual agreements end on June 30, 2017.  Again, we draw your attention to the software resources accessible via the CUNY Virtual Desktop: http://www2.cuny.edu/about/administration/offices/cis/virtual-desktop/.
