Retention Policy:  Students have up to one year to dispute a grade so the policy states a total of four semesters of Banner integrated courses will remain on the production system. Semester archives are taken at the end of each semester and are held at an off- site facility for those semesters no longer on the production system. 

Faculty Enrollments: The policy states that no one will be added to a course unless a faculty member puts in writing who can be added to their course or it is directed by a Dean of the College. The E-Learning Administrators may add themselves to a Blackboard course to help faculty and students with issues.

Student Enrollments: The policy states that the only way students are enrolled in the Blackboard course shell is through Banner Integration. [Academic Affairs Policy]
