October 30th is the last day to withdraw to zero credits and receive a 50% refund of tuition and fees.
The Blackboard connectivity problem that appeared at the start of the semester has been resolved.
The problem was a result of performance issues introduced by an upgrade in late August. Working with Blackboard engineers, NDSU IT staff completed a variety of activities to rebalance the system and eliminate those issues.
At this point, we will discontinue the 5-7 a.m. daily Blackboard maintenance window. We appreciate the information and feedback you provided regarding your experience with Blackboard at the start of the semester.
Contact the IT Help Desk at 701-231-8685 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
