Course Extension (Instructor Use Only)


INSTRUCTOR USE ONLY.  Students must contact their instructor directly to inquire about course extensions. 

This service is used by instructors to request a change to the course availability in Blackboard (i.e., extending or starting a course in Blackboard before or past the term dates).  

CONSIDERATIONS:  When course availability dates are changed in Blackboard, the change is applied to everyone in the course. If you need the course available only for specific individuals, go to "Course Management">"Users and Groups" and make the course unavailable for those that do not need access.
