ANGEL System Requirements

UCGA primarily utilizes the Angel Learning Management System, which is owned by Blackboard. This system has unique setup requirements that allow students to work more efficiently and with less system errors.

If requirements change, we will send alerts via system banners in Angel and update this page.
