  2. On the left hand side, enter your Sacred Heart username and password

  3. Select Login

  4. In the quick links module, located in the middle of the page, select the Blackboard link

  5. Your courses will be displayed in the middle of the page

Don't see your courses? 

If you registered for a course, and you do not see it in your course list, complete the following:

  • Make sure you allow 24 hours for your course to appear on Blackboard after you have registered.
  • If your course says Not Currently Available next to it, please contact your instructor. The Instructor has the ability to make the course available to students when they are ready. 

Viewing Grades in Blackboard 

Instructors will post grades for various assignments as well as feedback in the Blackboard course. You can view your progress during the semester, but official grades can only be found in WebAdvisor

  • To view your grades, select the course link on Blackboard. Once in the course, select Tools > My Grades. A list of grades the Instructor has posted will appear.
  • To view feedback on a particular assignment, select the course link on Blackboard. Once in the course, select Tools > My Grades. Select the name of the assignment. Your submission will appear, and you will see comments from your instructor, if they have provided them.
