BOLT Tips for Semester Start

Are you ready for the Fall semester?
Here are some tips.

Check your schedule.
Make sure your schedule looks like you thought it would in MyHusky. 

Check your email.
Instructors may email you prior to the semester with information.

Learn about BOLT.
Check out our Student Support page and visit our YouTube channel.

Get tech requirements.
Read your instructor's syllabus carefully and find out what technology is required.
Update Software.
Make sure you have all your software updates-especially your web browser.

Welcome New Students!

Incoming freshmen must complete an Orientation Seminar. This BOLT course is available at different times for different groups.

For Summer Start/Act 101 Students
Access to the course on July 2
Summer Assignment is due on July 30

For Other Incoming Freshmen
Access to the course on July 16
Summer Assignment is due on August 13

Transfer students must also complete an orientation program, but that program is NOT in BOLT. Transfer students will not be able to access BOLT until approximately 11 days prior to the start of the semester.

Please contact for any details about your orientation requirements!

Coming Soon to BOLT: Examity

We are pleased to announce a partnership with Examity®, a recognized leader in remote test proctoring. This relationship offers you a secure and convenient way to take your exams online.  

Examity® will be integrated with BOLT.  You will be able to access Examity® directly from BOLT, without the hassle of another username and password.  It also means that before using Examity® for the first time, all pertinent information will be imported into the system for the classes in which you are enrolled.

There is no cost to use Examity®.  Proctoring costs are being paid by Bloomsburg University.

Examity® will be available in 2016 Fall. We will provide tools you need to get familiar with the service.

Please watch for additional information about this service in the months to come. We know it will make your education experience even better, and we are very excited to roll it out to you!
