Is my Gmail (my.gvltec.edu email address) password different than my GTC4me/Blackboard password?
Yes. Your Gmail password is separate from your GTC4me/Blackboard password. The passwords on GTC4me/Blackboard and GMail are not linked to be automatically the same. When you change one of them, the other doesn't automatically change to the same. If you are a new student your initial password will be the word: circlechange, and if you are a returning student your password will be whatever you last set it to.
