Blackboard for Students

Submit an Assignment

When you are working on assignments or tests that will be graded, first make sure that you are using Firefox as your web browser.

  • Find where your assignment is located on your Blackboard site, and click the name of the assignment.
  • On the next page, you will see a space for submitting your assignment materials.  You can either copy and paste your information into the text box or you can attach a file (like an e mail).Note: If you attach a file, you have the option to rename the link to the file so your professor knows exactly who submitted the assignment just by clicking on the link.

After you have proofread and attached your documents, you next need to submit your assignment.There are two buttons options. Save as Draft only saves your submission. It does not submit your assignment, and your professor will not be able to grade it. When you have completed the assignment, you must click Submit and the assignment will be entered into the Gradebook for your professor to review. 

Remember: If you do not click Submit, your professor will not see your assignment! The Blackboard office has no way of telling when you Saved the assignment, only when you Submitted it.
