Student Access

Spring 2013 student access to Blackboard courses will end early Saturday morning May 18, 2013. It is difficult to give an exact time because disabling enrollment is a “process,” so students will be disabled at different times during the process.

The Blackboard system will begin disabling student enrollment access via Snapshot early Saturday morning and should be complete — barring any unforeseen technical complications — by 8 a.m. Saturday morning, at which point no student will have access to spring 2013 Blackboard courses.

Instructors, if you want to have all students in your course disabled at exactly the same time, you can make your course “unavailable” at the date and time that you determine (for example, if you want them to lose access Friday at midnight or even Thursday). If you choose to make your course “unavailable” earlier than Saturday, it would be helpful to post that information or e-mail your students, so they are not confused by different access policies between multiple courses.


  • All Spring 2013 students given a grade of I (Incomplete) will be able to access the spring 2013 courses again in Blackboard  after grades are posted by the Registrar
  • Students who have an I (Incomplete) will remain enrolled in their Spring 2013 Blackboard course until either the grade converts or 30 days into the Fall 2013 semester.
  • If faculty have assigned any student a grade of I (Incomplete), they must make their spring 2013 course set to be “available” in the Course Settings area in the Control Panel or the student will not be able to access it.
