Getting a new student organization OCMail/Blackboard/web account

The username and password for an organization's OCMail, Blackboard and web account is the same. To create a new account, we'll use the following procedure:

  1. Send an officer from your organization to the CIT Help Desk in person with a photo ID and a possible desired username for the account.
  2. We'll check your ID against the official list of officers provided by the student union office. That means that if you're a new organization and your charter has not yet gone through or you're not on the list of officers, we won't create an account for you. No exceptions.
  3. Once your identity has been verified, we'll have you fill out a short form with your contact information. This way, if there's a problem with the account, we'll know who to contact.
  4. Once the form has been submitted to our accounts manager, you should receive an envelope back containing login information within a week. This envelope is traditionally delivered via campus mail, although you can request to have it remain at CIT and pick it up in person.

Changing OCMail/Blackboard/web password

The password for an organization's OCMail, Blackboard and web account is the same. To change this password, we'll use the following procedure:

  1. Send an officer from your organization to the CIT Help Desk in person with a photo ID and the username of the account in question.
  2. We'll check your ID against the official list of officers provided by the student union office. That means that if you're a new organization and your charter has not yet gone through or you're not on the list of officers, we won't change the password for you. No exceptions.
  3. Once your identity has been verified, we'll reset the password for your accounts.

Changing a listserv password

Questions about your organization's listserv should be directed to listmaster@oberlin.edu. Owners of the listserv must also be verified by the student union office. Once the information is verified, we change the owner and password and the new owner will receive an instruction document via email.
