In an ongoing effort to improve overall security and ease of system use, UNK has adopted Electronic Access to System Information (EASI) as its primary authentication system.

A single username and password allows access into many UNK systems including LoperMail, BlackBoard, and Canvas.



Check Blackboard to see if you are enrolled in a Canvas class. Canvas is UNK’s new learning management system that will replace Blackboard. Blackboard will continue to run concurrently during this transition. By Spring 2018, all UNK courses will be in Canvas and Blackboard will be retired.
