Online Learning

UTRGV uses a tool called Blackboard to deliver online courses. Through Blackboard you will be able to access your course content, submit your assignments and tests, check your grades, and communicate with your instructor. 

To access Blackboard you will first need to login to the myUTRGV Portal. After logging in, click on the Blackboard icon located in the Applications window.

Courses will become available to students on the first day of the semester. However, some instructors may choose to open the course earlier.


You can search for online courses in the Course Schedule, once you find the courses that you would like to take, you can go ahead and register through ASSIST.

If your instructor provided this information, it could be found via ASSIST, the University Bookstore, and the Course Information Portal.
