Step 2

Change your e-mail address in WebAdvisor (and thus Blackboard)

Now that you have logged on, you need to do one thing right away: Check your e-mail address in the Grossmont computer systems so that you will be able to get e-mail from the instructor. You need to check this right away -- even before the semester begins. If the e-mail address Grossmont has for you is not one you check frequently, you're going to miss some important messages.

It's not difficult to figure out how to change your e-mail in Blackboard, but that's the wrong thing to do! WebAdvisor and Blackboard e-mails are automatically linked, and changes go from WebAdvisor to Blackboard, but they do NOT go from Blackboard to WebAdvisor. When you change your e-mail address in WebAdvisor, it will automatically be updated in Blackboard within 24 hours (usually overnight). However, if you change it in Blackboard yourself, the change will NOT be carried over into WebAdvisor; in fact, the old (bad) WebAdvisor e-mail will overwrite the Blackboard e-mail and your changes will be lost!

By the way, if your e-mail in Blackboard appears to be, this means that WebAdvisor has no idea what your e-mail address is; you should change it to a working e-mail right away.

Within 24 hours (usually overnight), WebAdvisor will automatically transfer your new e-mail address into Blackboard. After that, the instructor will be able to send you e-mail easily at your correct address.
