Reactivate a Student for Financial Aid Verification


This article provides information about how to Reactivate a Student in your Blackboard course site in order to view past participation in the course in response to the Financial Aid Office requests for proof of participation for a dropped student.

When a student drops a course they are automatically switched to inactive in your course site. When students are inactive you will not be able to see their grades in the Blackboard grade center.  Please select the Blue Button below and fill out the Reactivate a Student in Gradebook Request.

Once the student is reactivated, you can access their information in the Blackboard Grade Center again.  From there, you can respond to the Financial Aid Office:

“Yes, I have documentation that the student attended and participated up until ____date”
“No, I have no documentation of attendance”
