    1. Click on the blue 'NCC LOGIN' button.

    2. On the next page, enter in your NCC credentials and click “sign in” to enter Blackboard.

    3. NCC credentials are the login username and password that are also used to access Workday.

    This 2 minute video demonstrates these steps in more detail.

    If you follow these instructions but still have trouble logging in, contact the NCC Help Desk (helpdesk@northampton.edu).
