Faculty - Making a Blackboard Course Available to Individual Students


Instructors can make a previous course available to students either by making the course available to the entire class or for individual students. The steps below will show you how to make a course available to individual students in the course. 

Note: You do not need to go back into the course and make the students available again when the instructor is finished. 


1. Go into the course you want to make available to the student(s).  
2. Under Course Management, click Users and Groups. Then click Users.



3. Click the gray chevron next to the student username that DOES NOT need access to the course. Then click Change User's Availability in Course.




4.Under Role and Availability click the drop down menu next to Available (this course only). Then click No. When finished click Submit.

Do this for the remaining students in the class, except for the student(s) that has been granted access.

Note: You are not changing the Student's Role, just their availability in the course. 





5. Double check that the course is available. This will allow students to see the course in their Course List in Blackboard. To make the course available:

  • Under Course Management click Customization.
  • Then click Properties.
  • Scroll down until you see Availability. Click the radio button next to Yes to make the course available. Then click Submit.

Note: Please notify students via email that the course has been made available instead of using the course Announcements section.
