Not all instructors utilize Blackboard:

  • You may be registered for a course that will not be listed on this page. Registering for a course through the Registrar's office, does not guarantee that you will be enrolled in a Blackboard course.
  • Your instructor should inform you if he or she is using the Blackboard system. At times, instructors request a course but do not immediately make it available to the students.
  • If you believe that a course should be listed on this page but you don't see it, please speak to your instructor prior to using the Blackboard Problem/Support form.
