You will need an email account to use with online classes. If you do not already have an account, free email accounts can be obtained from online companies such as Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, and others. Links to some email web sites can be found at the Download Center.
To change your email in Blackboard, you need to change it in WebAdvisor under the student menu, Personal Information. It will be updated in Blackboard the next day.
All students enrolled at Grossmont and Cuyamaca automatically
