Most classes will be marked “unavailable” until the instructor sets it to open, which is usually on the first day of classes, but sometimes before then. NOTE: When a student enrolls in a course that uses Blackboard, he/she will not see that course listed in Blackboard until the next day due to the time it takes for processing.

Blackboard provides a “Student Support” tab at the top of the Blackboard page.
