Why is my course not available in Blackboard?


At the Start of Term

Courses will not appear in Blackboard until the first day of a term. You cannot access your course through Blackboard ahead of time.

A course may not appear for the following reasons, even after term has started:

  • Course is not open (course not made available by the instructor)
  • Course is listed under Upcoming (within Courses page of Blackboard)
  • You have been removed from the course by the Registrar (check with the Registrar to confirm you are enrolled in the course and haven't been removed for non-payment: email admissions@rdpolytech.ca)
  • Course is delivered through Extended Education

If your course doesn't appear in your Blackboard once the term has started, contact your instructor.

If you are unsure of whether you should see a course listed, contact your instructor.

At the End of Term

After the course is over, you will no longer have access to your course. If you wish to save course materials for future use, do so before the course ends.
