This may seem like a very obvious starting point, but Blackboard is linked to the student records system and will only grant access to registered students (status RE in Banner). Your entire UU life cycle centers on your student registration status in Banner.

On this page

Check your Registration status

1. Go to Self Service Banner at:
3. Input your User ID and PIN:
1. Your User ID is your student B number and your initial PIN is your date of birth in the format DDMMYY.
4. Select the Login button.
5. Select the "Student and Financial Aid" tab.
6. Select the "Registration" link and finally select "Enrolment Status History" link.

This example below shows a typical student’s Registration history. A returning student is ER Expected to Return or for a new student EL, eligible to enrol, then ON, meaning they have started Online Enrolment. Having successfully completed Online Enrolment their status changes to RE, registered status.

Once your registration status is RE, Blackboard access usually automatically follows in 24hrs.
