Restore Blackboard Course Request Form

What is this request for?

This form's purpose is to request that a course that has been archived be restored to our Blackboard production server. Faculty may request a course restoration of any courses taught at UTRGV from 2015 to 2020. Courses from 2021 to the present are still available on our production server. Faculty may export/archive the course if they want to preserve a copy of the course. Faculty may also do a course copy, download files, review student grades, etc. Restored courses will be available in the LMS for a maximum of 15 days based on your request and deleted after that time.


  1. Submit a Blackboard Course Restore request form.
  2. The Blackboard admin will locate the archive files and do the restore.
  3. You will be notified once the course is available for your review.
  4. The restored course will be deleted from the system after the time requested.

Note: Please allow 24 to 48 hours for this process to be completed.
