COURSES: Why can't I find my course in Blackboard?

Courses may not appear in Blackboard for multiple reasons.

  • Courses may take up to 24-48 hours after registration to appear in Blackboard. 
  • If a course has not been enabled by the instructor, it will not appear. Some instructors do not enable courses until the semester begins and some choose not to use Blackboard. Email your instructor to see if they have not enabled the course.
  • If you have re-registered for a course that you previously dropped, your course may not appear correctly. Email your instructor to ensure you are on the class list and that the instructor has activated the course. 
  • It is also possible that the course has been hidden temporarily. To restore access, please refer to these instructions: How do I restore courses that I hid from my Blackboard list?
