Welcome to the Student Support Libguide to assist you in navigating and using Blackboard.

Blackboard has provided short videos to provide you with quick instructions on how to do certain tasks within Blackboard. 

HBU has also provided students with the option to self-enroll into certain courses, such as the Academic Integrity course which awards you 1 CLW point upon completion. The other class that is available for self-enrollment is the Orientation to Blackboard course.

If you have suggestions for improvements, please contact to request additional information.  Please check back for further updates.


Official Enrollment

Students are added to blackboard via imports from the Banner system the HBU student registration system.

When a student is officially dropped from a course, the student may or may not be removed from the course roster inside of Blackboard. If a student has officially dropped a course through the registration system add/drop process, for whatever reason, the student is no longer a member of the class even if the student has not yet been removed from the Blackboard portion of the course. After an official drop has been processed, the ability to access Blackboard does not constitute enrollment in a course.
