Reference the suggestions below.

  • Within the Courses page, click Current Courses Upcoming Courses and verify it is not listed there. 
  • Verify the course is listed in your Online Faculty Center
  • Verify that it has been at least 15-30 minutes since the course has been assigned by your department. 
  • For-Credit Blackboard course shells are created 45 days before the semester start date as indicated in PeopleSoft
