Farmingdale State College understands the flexible scheduling and independent learning opportunities that today's students expect. We know you are busy and may not be able to adjust your schedule or commute to campus. Distance learning allows you to take a course here and there, and/or earn a college degree at your own convenience any time and any place.
For Blackboard-related and other distance learning related questions contact the Distance Learning department at firstname.lastname@example.org. This email will be answered between Monday through Friday from 9AM to 5PM.
This video: "Logging into Blackboard" is a tutorial with step-by-step instructions on how to log into Farmingdale State College's Blackboard LMS.
To further assist our faculty, staff, and students, we created a new FAQ web page to help you find answers to frequently asked technology questions.
