Blackboard Username and CAC Student E-mail Address Format
All Central Arizona College students are automatically assigned a Blackboard username and CAC Student E-mail account upon admission to CAC. You can look up your Blackboard and E-mail account information in the "Online Services" area.
Your Blackboard Username and CAC E-mail Address
Your Blackboard username is your CAC Student E-mail address. Blackboard and CAC E-mail are now the same account and the full e-mail address is required to login. If a name has been duplicated numbers are added at the end of the usernames. Hyphenated lastnames do not have a – in the username. Double firstnames do not have a space or – in the username.
For example: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
Blackboard and E-mail Password
You Blackboard and E-mail Account share the same password as they are the same account. The default password is your birthday in MMDDYYYY format - 8 numbers are required. For example, if you were born March 15, 1986 your password will be 03151986.
