How do I remove a student from my Blackboard Course?

PLEASE NOTE: Be careful when removing students from Blackboard course sites as all information associated with the student (including grades and assignment submissions) will be deleted. Before removing students, make sure you do not need to refer back to these students' grades, assignments, quizzes, etc. from the Blackboard course site.

Before you remove a student from your Blackboard course site they need to be removed from the Banner system. If they are not removed from Banner first they will be re-enrolled after you remove the student from your Blackboard course.
  • Please wait 48 hours after a student drops your course for Banner to update its records and so that our Banner-driven overnight student enrollment process does not re-enroll the student to your Blackboard course site.
