TROY Service Centers meet the needs of working adults, including military, government agency civilians, teachers and future business leaders who want the opportunities that come with earning a degree. Because adult learners often have different educational needs than traditional students, courses are provided at times and in formats designed around people who work and have other commitments for their time.

Go to Blackboard
Troy University uses the Blackboard Learning Management system to offer online and web-enhanced courses. When accessing Blackboard, users should utilize one of the following recommended Web browsers: Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.
Students and faculty/staff members will use the Blackboard site to access course/site documents, research links and library resources, receive and deliver completed assignments electronically, take tests, and communicate with each other.
Although communication is generally asynchronous (i.e., you don't have to log in at a certain time), the actual course content is very structured. Normally assignments will be grouped by weeks or by modules and will be due on certain dates chosen by the instructor. Online classes are not easier than on-campus classes; in fact, many times they are more difficult because the student has to be very self-motivated.
Visit the Student Resources Page for general information, animated tutorials, help request forms, and downloads.
