Retention Policy: In order to cover grade disputes and since students have up to one year to dispute a grade, the policy states a total of four semesters of Banner integrated courses will remain 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.

If this is the case, the E-Learning Administrators will enroll themselves in the course, get the necessary documentation, and un-enroll themselves. [...more info]
Student Enrollments: The policy states that the only way students are enrolled in the Blackboard course shell is through the Banner Integration. No student may be added by an E-Learning Administrator or faculty member. [Academic Affairs Policy]
