Single Sign On

UVM is moving towards streamlining its login processes across systems into one. As part of this work, the Blackboard login process is changing.

Logging in via WebAuth

You can now access many UVM services by logging into one place with your NetID. If you have logged into any of these services on campus (such as UVM File Transfer, UVM Blogs, or Library reserves - anything that connects you through the Webauth.uvm.edu), you will be automatically logged into Bb.

As always, you can still log in directly to https://bb.uvm.edu. Simply enter your ID into the box and the page will take you to the appropriate login page. For most users, this page will be webauth.uvm.edu. Local, non-NetID users will see the Bb default login screen.

Logging in via myUVM

By logging into myUVM, you can get into your Blackboard courses with a single click. For the majority of Bb users (i.e. those with NetID’s), the quickest way to get into Bb will be the myUVM portal.

There are existing cookie problems that exist when users who accessed Bb from myUVM, then logged out of Bb. The solution to this issue (which causes problems logging back in to Bb), is to delete your cookies and/or restart your browser. These issues are expected to be resolved when myUVM moves to WebAuth/Single Sign On this summer.

Logging out

To safely log out of Bb, or any other UVM service accessed through Single Sign On, be sure to close out of your browser after logging out.
