Prime Logo

Prime was a learning management system for all five Colleges/Schools and for Hospital training programs. Vendor support has since ended.

In 2017 we transitioned active operations to Blackboard Learn.

Current students and faculty can now use your NetID username and password to log in to Prime.

Prime's schedule for closing down is as follows:

June 30, 2018

  •  Login access will be restricted to on-campus; no more login from offsite.
  •  No new accounts can be created.

September–November 2018:

  •  ACT Office will work with degree programs to retrieve key information they may need for upcoming accreditation site visits.

December 31, 2018:

  •  The Prime server will be shut down.
