Blackboard FAQ for Faculty

How do I add students to my course?

Class rosters are automatically synced with Ellucian Colleague. If a student just enrolled in your course, it may take a day to sync. If the student still isn't in your course, please contact us

Please do not attempt to enroll students directly on Blackboard, the synchronization process from Colleague ensures student access to your Blackboard course as well as grade synchronization in the future.
When will my course shell be available?

New course shells are automatically created 40 days before the start of a semester.
