Change of your Email Address or Name

Change the Email Address used in BbLearn

BbLearn allows just ONE email address per user. Users with more than one UI email address can select which email account is used in BbLearn (by defining your primary account). Your student email address is set as the primary email address by default. Contact the ITS Student Technology Center (, 208-885-4357) or your ITS Technology Solutions Partners (TSP) to have your primary email designation switched to your employee email.

Change of your Name used in BbLearn

The name stored in BbLearn for you is automatically synched with your official records at the University of Idaho. If you wish to have your official name changed, follow the steps below:

  • If you are an employee of the university, you must change your employment records through Human Resources.
  • If you are registered for any classes for the current term, then BbLearn uses your official full "Student Name"--which can be different from other official names the University of Idaho has for you (e.g., Human Resources, Payroll, Alumni). The only way to change a student's name in BbLearn is to fill out a request for a change of name through the Registrar's Office, which you may do through the Registrar's "Change of Name" form.
