Blackboard Course Merge

Blackboard Learning Management System (LMS) is a web-based course management tool used to organize and deliver materials for courses. Blackboard course merge requests are used to copy all student enrollment from two or more courses into a “parent” course. Merging courses helps avoid having to replicate and update the same content across multiple courses/sections offered in the same semester.

What to Expect

Courses will be merged within 24 hours of the request, unless the request is made outside of business hours.


In order to request a course merge, the request must be made by the faculty of record for the courses being merged. The following information will need to provided:

  • CRNs of all courses being merged
  • Preferred course name
  • Term
