First you should inform your faculty that you are encountering an issue; they may be able to help.
If not, follow the Blackboard Login instructions at www.cuny.edu/blackboard.
Course enrollments take 24-48 hours to be transmitted from CUNYfirst to Blackboard. If your course is listed as “not currently available,” your instructor has not made it available to students. Most instructors will not make their course available until the first day of the semester. If you are still seeing the course as unavailable AFTER the first day of class, contact your instructor. If you are missing courses, verify your course enrollment in CUNYfirst and see your campus Registrar. If you can see the missing course in CUNYfirst and it is more than 24 hours after you have registered, contact the Technology Service Center at 718.289.5970 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
