As part of our initiative to improve student success and academic integrity, all
online students are required to verify their student identity.
Federal regulations require that all institutions verify that the student who registers for an online learning course is the same student who participates in and completes the course. This is part of the Higher Education Opportunity Act, enacted in 2008.
As an online student, you will be asked to create a biometric password using a tool called Biometric Signature ID (BioSig-ID™). This password cannot be replicated by someone else.
Please Note: All BioSig-ID™ activity takes place inside your Blackboard course/s.
You will be asked at various points throughout the course to validate your identity.
Look for the BioSig-ID™ image in your weekly learning content or when you are prompted automatically.
Watch the BioSig-ID™ Enrollment Process explained visually in the following video .
