For students who you've authorized an Incomplete grade, you must complete the following steps if you plan to use the LMS for the remainder of the student's requirements. These are the steps for using Canvas and assume you have already begun the academic process to continue the incomplete.

Spring 2022 and Earlier:
  1. Download student work from Blackboard (Should have been done prior to May 30. If not please make a note in the comments on step 5)
  2. Request an Incomplete Course Shell. If you cannot find the CRN for your course, please provide the subject, course, and section (example: ART 123 201)
  3. Export the Blackboard course and Import into Canvas. (The export and download should have been completed prior to May 30. If not please make a note in the comments on step 5). Additional time will be required.
  4. Update the imported course in Canvas
  5. Notify Online Education that the course is ready for student enrollment - complete the Online Help Request form and select Incomplete Enrollments as the area of concern
  6. Communicate with your student(s) to ensure they are prepared to complete the course work in Canvas and understand your expectations
Summer 2022 and Later:
  • Simply follow the academic process to continue the incomplete. If you are unfamiliar with this process, please contact your dean.
  • We will create another section in your current course to continue the incomplete and send you more information once the continuation is processed to Online Education through the registrar.

For additional questions/assistance, please submit an Online Education- Request for Assistance form. The first available team member will reach out.
