Coastal’s online courses are equivalent to traditional courses in academic rigor and student requirements.  Students should not view an online course as “easier” than traditional courses.  In fact, successful students often find online classes to be more challenging than traditional classes, due to the additional reading and personal discipline that is required.

Before enrolling in an online course, students must…

  • Have a working knowledge of the Internet, email, and basic word processing skills.
  • Have continuous access to a computer with a reliable connection to the Internet.
  • Be highly self-motivated and self-directed.

Blackboard Information for Continuing Education Classes

If you are already a student, your username and password will not change.  If you have forgotten your password, click on the “forgot password” button, enter your user name, and click continue.  Answer the series of security questions successfully and click continue once more.  Enter your new password and confirm.  Click continue one final time to complete the reset process.
