Blackboard Learning Management System

Students gain access to the Blackboard Learning Management System on Wednesday before class officially starts. This gives you ample time to upload your mandatory PME completion certificate(s), SEA Acknowledgement letter, and get familiar with the course layout. Additionally, E-7s must upload their CO's Endorsement letter.

Academic Information

The academic week runs Monday through Sunday. Expect approximately 12 to 15 hours of academic work each week during the seven week DL phase.

Check out the syllabus for a week-by-week description of the DL portion of the program.
