New Procedure for Merging Course Enrollments in Blackboard

Effective immediately, The self-service “Merge Course Enrollments” tool in Blackboard is no longer working or supported.

Therefore, we are transitioning to an alternative course enrollment merge tool. The new tool is not self-service, and must be activated by eLearning staff.

To have your course enrollments merged, you must submit a “Merge Course Enrollment” request via Blackboard. eLearning staff will perform the merge and send you an email when the process is completed. The form can be found in Blackboard via the ‘My eLearning’ tab (login tab) and is viewable only by faculty.

  1. Click on the link for the Merge Course Enrollment request form.
  2. Enter all requested information in the form fields, then click Submit. If you are requesting more than 2 'child' courses, please submit an additional form. You will receive an email from eLearning once your request has been processed.
  3. After your request has been processed, the 'child' courses will be marked as unavailable and will list which course it is a child to.
