Blackboard: Submitting an Assignment (Student)

Your instructor can add assignments to different areas of your course. You might access assignments from a link on the course menu called "Assignments." Or, your instructor might incorporate assignments into each week's content.


  1. Open the assignment. On the Upload Assignment page, review the instructions, due date, points possible, and download any files provided by your instructor.

  2. Select Write Submission to expand the area where you can type your submission OR select Browse My Computer to upload a file from your computer.


  3. Select Submit. The Review Submission History page appears with information about your submitted assignment and a success message with a confirmation number. Copy and save this number as proof of your submission.  

  • Ensure that your documents are closed on your local computer before attempting to upload them.

  • Firefox is the recommended browser for accessing Blackboard. Google Chrome may be used alternatively.

  • Blackboard does not accept .pages, .key and .numbers file types.
