Blackboard Learn link is http://gptc.blackboard.com.

We ensure that a student who registers in a distance or correspondence education course or program is the same student who participates in and completes the course or program and receives the credit by using a secure login (which includes their Student Number), and pass code to our online classes. Students are not charged an additional fee for online identity verification. 

Your current term classes will not be available until the 1st day of classes. You always need to look for your online courses on the 1st day of the term. All online courses begin the 1st day of classes so you need to try to login on the 1st or 2nd day of class for the term. Please try your login after 2pm on the 1st day of class.

If you add a class during drop/add it may take up to 24 hours for the class to be added to Blackboard Learn.

Remember to come to this website before you attempt to login on the first day of classes. Any changes to online course login information will be published here first. This information is subject to change without notice. Come back to this page at the beginning of every term.
