The Blackboard Learning System is a virtual learning environment and course management system. Its main purposes are to add online elements to courses traditionally delivered face-to-face and to develop completely online courses with few or no face-to-face meetings.

Please review the Blackboard Standard Operating Procedures for policies regarding support and requests for copying courses, combining courses, and the schedule for archiving courses.

All faculty and students automatically have access to Blackboard. Instructors can submit a request to create a Guest account in their course for users outside of the Pace community.


Instructors can begin accessing their course in Blackboard once they have been assigned to the course by their department in Banner. Access begins 4 months before the official course start-date. Instructors have access to the course 3 years after the course ends.

Students can begin accessing their courses on the official start-date of the semester. Instructors can optionally choose to manually make their course available to students up to 3 weeks before the official start-date to provide early access to students. Students have access up to 6 weeks after the official end date.
