How to Enroll Users into Blackboard Courses

The Enroll User feature allows Instructors and TA’s to manually add users to a course and set their course role. Students are automatically enrolled/un-enrolled into courses, but you can add additional students, guests, another instructor, or a teaching assistant into your course.

Step 1

In the Control panel of your Blackboard course, click on Users and Groups, then select Users.

Step 2

Select the Find Users to Enroll button (do not use the search box on this page).

Step 3

    • Option 1: If you know the Mason username, enter the NetID of the user you wish to enroll into the Username field.
      Blackboard User Name Entry
    • Option 2: Otherwise, select Browse to search the database of users (we recommend by Last Name, but you can search by other methods as well).

      Select the checkbox of the user you wish to add, then click the Submit button.

Step 4

Select the Role for the new user. View information about Blackboard Course Roles.

Step 5

Click the Submit button.

Note: If the user is already enrolled in the course, his/her name will not appear when browsing for a user. In addition, if a student had previously enrolled and then dropped the course, you will not be able to add them to the course. You will need to contact us to manually add them in the course.
