If you have questions about your PID/Campus ID or OHIO ID, please call the Service Desk at 740.593.1222.
Register for courses:
Please review your Program of Study so you know which courses to enroll in for this term. If you have questions, contact your advisor. You should receive an email message when it is time to register to explain the enrollment process. If you do not receive this email or are having issue enrolling, please contact Lisa S. dael at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
If you attempt to enroll for a class and get a message saying you have not met the prerequisite or that permission is required, you should select the "Request Permission" link. This process is replacing the green slipping process and will allow you to make an electronic request to the instructor to get into the class. For further instructions, please visit: How to request permission for a class video.
If you are not sure which courses you should enroll in please contact your advisor. For problems registering, please send a screenshot to Lisa Dael email@example.com so she can assist you.
Log into Blackboard
Once you have registered for classes, you will be able to access Blackboard. You may need to wait a couple of hours before you can log in for the first time. Your courses will NOT show up in your course list until the instructor makes them available to you. You will use your OHIO ID and password to log in.
Please check the Course Listings for textbooks. Please feel free to purchase your textbooks from wherever you choose. We do not require you to purchase from a specific vendor. If you have questions about your materials, please reach out to the instructor of the class.
