NEW FOR SPRING 2015...THERE IS A NEW LOGIN PROCEDURE FOR ACCESSING YOUR TVCC ONLINE COURSES!
   
Posted: 1/16/2015 6:18:18 PM
You will log in to your e-Courses using your Cardinal ID and assigned Password(NEW)


TVCC has assigned passwords for ALL users in Blackboard!  Even if you have taken online courses before at TVCC, your old password will NOT work!  Please read the information below (choose which student category fits you) with important information about accessing your online courses. 

 
Have you taken an online course at TVCC before? 

  • Your old password will not work! 
  • You must use a new assigned password to access your Spring 2015 online courses. 
  • The new password criteria is last name, first initial and the last 4 digits of your social security number (all lower case, no spaces). 
  • When accessing TVCC e-Courses you will use the same username (your Cardinal ID) and this new password. 
  • The Distance Learning Department at TVCC cannot give out Cardinal ID’s or passwords over the phone or through email.  If you do not know your Cardinal ID, you must follow the process for obtaining your Cardinal ID and you must know the last 4 digits of your social security number in order to utilize your assigned password. 

 Will this be your first semester to take an online course at TVCC?

  • To access your online courses, on Tuesday, January 20th at 8:00 am, please visit the TVCC website at www.tvcc.edu and choose the e-Courses icon which is in the upper right hand side under the “search” box and next to the Cardinal Connection icon.  You can also type in the direct link which is https://ecourses.tvcc.edu.  
  • At the Blackboard login page students will use a specific username and password to access their online courses at TVCC. 
  • Your username is your Cardinal ID (ex:  last name, first initial, 3 numbers that were assigned to you).  You can find your Cardinal ID on your printed schedule.  If you do not know your Cardinal ID, you will need to visit https://mail.tvcc.edu and choose the “Activate my Cardinal ID” icon.  At the Cardinal ID activation screen please choose “Get My Cardinal ID” (on the right in red).  At the “Obtain Cardinal ID and TVIN” screen put your social security number, month of birth, year of birth and choose “search”.   Your Cardinal ID will be listed in the second box under your name. 
  • Your password is your last name, first initial, and the last 4 digits of your social security number (all lower case, no spaces).
