Enrolling an External User through IVIP
To protect our students’ and professors’ privacy, people who are not affiliated with USC are unable to access Blackboard as a guest, student, auditor, or teaching assistant. However, USC does offer a mechanism for you to request that an external user be given an account so that you can manually add that user to your Blackboard organization. To request a Blackboard account for a guest who is not a currently-enrolled USC student or a currently-employed USC faculty and staff member, please contact your school’s or department’s IVIP administrator [http://www.usc.edu/its/iam/ivip/administrators.html] and request that your school or department sponsor an iVIP account for your guest.
Once the iVIP account request is processed by your school or department and the account is created, you can then manually enroll your guest into your organization.
