E-mail, Blackboard, and Gibson Online Accounts

Creation of Tulane e-mail, Blackboard, and Gibson Online accounts requires efforts from the hiring department, the employee, Technology Services, and Workforce Management Organization.

Once a New Hire has completed their hiring packet online, supplied WFMO with acceptable I-9 Supporting Documents, and completed Orientation, the creation of an email account and Tulane ID will be triggered. The new employee’s hiring manager will receive an email containing the employee’s name, Tulane ID, Tulane e-mail address, Tulane e-mail user name, and temporary password. Additionally, instructions regarding changing the temporary e-mail password will be included. 

Access to Blackboard Course Scheduler and Gibson Online will not be active until the employee is entered into HCM.
