Blackboard Archive Process


In this article, we discuss the Blackboard archive process, how to opt. out of it, and how to have your archived course restored.

Course sites greater than 2 years will be archived using known OIT Application admin team working processes that will not affect course content when course is restored.  Below are the dates when the applicable semester courses greater than 2 years old will be archived.

  • Spring courses = June 1st
  • Summer courses = Sept 1st
  • Fall courses = Jan 1st

To prevent or opt. out your course site from being archived please complete the opt out request for blackboard course archive and retention form.

To restore a course from the archive please complete the Restore Blackboard course request form.
