Log in using your USC ID and password (the same credentials you use to access your USC web-based email).

DEN Students

If you are currently a Distance Education Network student with the Viterbi School of Engineering and you are taking a online learning class from the Price School of Public Policy, the process by which you access your classes and your Blackboard account may be  different than the DEN’s process.

You will have a separate blackboard account for your USC Price classes, so these will not show up in your DEN Blackboard. Please see the section above for instructions on how to access the college Blackboard system and your online learning classes.
