Blackboard Password Reset Procedures:

How do I change my password?

Complete the steps outlined below to change your Blackboard password:

  1. Change Blackboard passwords from the UHV Password Self Service site. Select the Change Existing Password option. You'll be required to provide your UHV Student ID (UHV domain information for faculty, adjuncts, and UHV staff), existing password, and enter a new password. Please wait 15 minutes after changing or resetting your password before logging into the Blackboard system with the new password information.
  2. If you forgot your password but have already set up password recovery information for your UHV Student ID or username on the UHV Password Self Service site, you can use the Reset Forgotten Password option to reset your password and log into the UHV systems. Please wait 15 minutes after changing or resetting your password before logging into the Blackboard system with the new password information.
  3. If you forgot your password and have not set up your password recovery question for your UHV Student ID or username, you'll need to contact the UHV IT Help Desk. The Help Desk is located on the second floor of University Center on the UHV (Victoria) campus. If you are not on campus, you can Request Help via e-mail or call the Help Desk at 361-570-4399 or 1-877-970-4848, Ext. 4399.

UHV students, faculty, adjuncts, and staff who have not set up password recovery information for their UHV Student ID or username on the the UHV Password Self Service site, should create this information by visiting the site and selecting the Setup Password Recovery Questions option so they can reset their password should they need to in the future.
