Students have access to courses 7 days prior to the start of the term. Students must be officially registered for a course in order to be assigned to a course in Blackboard. If you do not see any of your courses in Blackboard and it is within 7 days of the start of the term, contact the Registrar’s office to confirm you are officially registered. If you see your course but it does not contain any content, it may be that your instructors are not using Blackboard this semester. Generally, instructors will tell you on the first day of class if they plan to use Blackboard in a course.
