Once you have registered and paid for a TCC online course, you should follow these steps immediately:
1. Activate your eAccount.
(Your eAccount is the username and password that you will use to log on to Blackboard, TCC Passport, and computers in TCC's academic labs.)
2. Obtain an TCC non-photo ID.
If you are a distance learning student who lives in the tri-county area (Leon, Gadsden & Wakulla), you will need to come on campus to obtain a photo ID card from the Cashier's Office in person. You will also need to obtain a photo ID card if you will be coming on campus to use:
If you are a distance learning student outside the tri-county area you may send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a non-photo ID card so that you can use the library online databases or reciprocal library services in your geographic area. Be sure to include your first and last name, your address, telephone, and email.
3. Activate your Library Card (which is your non-photo ID).
To do so, call the Library Circulation department at (850) 201-8376. You can also activate your library card online at the Ask a Librarian Page.
4. Email your instructor and introduce yourself.
(Use your TCC email address.)
Students should be able to access their courses through Blackboard on the first day of the semester. Students who register for a class during the first week of the semester will need to wait one business day before they can access the class through Blackboard. For problems with Blackboard access, contact the student help desk at (850) 201-8540.
