Resetting Your Blackboard Password

Blackboard provides a way for you to reset or retrieve your password without having to go through the Virtual Campus office. It is important to remember when attempting to retrieve your password that the link will be sent to your wayland.wbu.edu email account. If you have not already done so, you will need to set up your Wayland email account now.

Have you set-up your Wayland email account?

Yes (link to reset password)

No (link to instructions to set up email)

You can check your Wayland email at http://www.wbu.edu/email. Your email address will usually be your firstname.lastname@wayland.wbu.edu. You will need to type your entire email address in as your user name.

The temporary email password format is as follows: first four letters of your first name (lowercase), a period or dot, first four letters of your last name (all caps), a period or dot, and the last four digits of your social security number.
(EX: john.SMIT.1234 or jim.COX.4321)
