ADMINISTRATOR INSTRUCTIONS: Use the instructions below to add users (graders, co-instructors, course builders, etc.) to your Blackboard courses.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT add students to your courses! Students will be automatically enrolled via an automated process through the Registrar's Office.  Adding students by hand can cause issues with registrations.  If a student is not showing up in your roster, contact the Registrar's Office.

STUDENTS: You cannot add users to courses.  If you are not in a course, you should check DataVU to be sure you are registered.  If you are registered and the course is not showing up, inquire with your instructor as they may not have made the course active or they are not using Blackboard.  If you are not registered in DataVU, contact your advisor or the Registrar's Office if you are not registered.
