Recover an Old Course

While courses are only kept on Blackboard for 4 years, the Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning maintains an offline archive of older courses.

If you require access to an older course may email (or use the form at the bottom of this page) for assistance. In your mail, you must include:

  • The CRN for the course in question
  • The course prefix and number
  • The year the course was offered
The CETL cannot recover an archived course without this information.

CETL requires a minimum of two business days to process your request. Because CETL has to engage Blackboard's Technical Support to restore larger courses, recovery may take significantly longer.
