Online Course Enrollment Through Blackboard

Login to Blackboard with your NetID and password. Your NetID is included in your admissions paperwork. Your initial password is an 8 digit number comprised of your birth year and the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number. You will be required to change your password at your initial login. Once logged in, you can enroll your course through Blackboard. Three scenarios of Blackboard enrollment are listed below:

Instructor Enrollment

Some instructors will give you access without requiring any action on your part. You should log into Blackboard during the first three days of the semester to see if you have been given access. If an instructor has granted access, the course will be displayed under "My Courses" on your Blackboard dashboard. If the course does not appear on the dashboard, follow the instructions for self enrollment without a password. If you are not allowed to self enroll, and you have not been enrolled by your instructor by the third day of the semester, contact the Extended Education office for assistance.

Self-Enrollment without a Password

Some instructors will require you to self-enroll your course. If the course does not show up on your Blackboard dashboard at the beginning of the semester, search the catalog and self-enroll the course by following these instructions:

  • Login to Blackboard

  • Click "Courses" menu option at the top of the page

  • Click  "Browse Course Catalog" button

  • Search the appropriate course and instructor

  • Hover the cursor over the course in which you wish to enroll. If the course allows self enrollment without a password, a down arrow will be displayed.

  • Click the down arrow

  • Click "Enroll."

  • The course will now display on your dashboard and you will have access to the course.

If self enrollment is not allowed by the third day of the semester, students should contact the Extended Education office for assistance.

Self-Enrollment with a Password

Some instructors will require you to register yourself through Blackboard with a password. If a password is required, you will be sent the information via email. If you are sent a password, click on the Course Catalog button in Blackboard, search and find the appropriate course and instructor, and use the password provided to add the course.

If you have not been given access or a password and are not able to register the course by the third day of the semester, contact the Extended Education office at (661) 654-2441 for assistance.
