There may be reasons to rename a course that is no longer being actively used for teaching. This guide will walk you through changing the name of your course.

If you are using this guide to request an exception to the course retention policy, such as to request a course three years or older to not be deleted, or to allow a course one to two years old to be deleted, follow these instructions here. 

This is only meant to be used for courses that are no longer used to teach a class. While you can go through this process for current or future courses, the changes will NOT be maintained due to Banner synchronization with the Blackboard system.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Login to Blackboard as normal.

  2. Find and enter the course you want to make the changes on.

  3. In the left Course Management area, click Customization.

  4. Click Properties

  5. In the Course Name field, type the new desired course name, and click Submit.

  6. At the top of the Left side menu, you can click the refresh icon and your new name should appear below.
