UARK Blackboard Student Help Desk: How to Get the Most Out of Blackboard

Students often have a lot of questions about their Blackboard accounts, whether it’s learning how to find the assignments they missed in class or figuring out how to connect their devices with their accounts so they can stay on top of things while on the go. Luckily, there’s one place students can go that will answer all of their questions about their UARK Blackboard accounts: the UARK Student Help Desk! Here’s how to get the help you need from the UARK Student Help Desk.

Who We Are

The UARK Blackboard Student Help Desk is an IT service that provides support to the UARK community. As a student, you may need help with account management, getting files from your computer onto the UARK network, or getting an email account. As a faculty or staff member, you may need assistance with password resets, connecting to wireless networks on campus, and more. We are available Monday-Friday 8 am-5 pm to answer your questions and get you back on track. If we don’t have the answer for you, we’ll find it for you. All of our services are free of charge. No matter what level of support you need, come talk to us about how we can help.

How do I register my laptop at UARK? What software does the university provide for me to use when I’m here on campus? Where can I go if my device needs repair or I lost my charger? And many other great topics related to IT, stop by today! Our office hours are Monday-Friday 8 am-5 pm, but feel free to call anytime during those hours to schedule a meeting outside of normal business hours.

The first thing to do if you’re having difficulty logging in to your account or submitting a paper is to verify your username and password. If that doesn’t work, the next step would be to contact the student help desk. Here are some of the most common questions we receive:
-How do I register for a course?
-I can’t log in to my account. What should I do?
-I need help submitting my paper/thesis what should I do? -How do I find out about course grades and how does it work if I get an incomplete grade/extra credit opportunity etc.? To see your grades, login to Blackboard and click on my courses from the menu bar at the top left. Underneath each course title, you’ll see three columns that show when assignments were submitted, graded, and returned respectively.

All courses have a Final Grade column where the final letter grade will appear once all assignments have been graded. Your transcript displays your final letter grade as well as any other credits earned such as extra credit opportunities or incompletes. It’s worth noting that only full-time students will have access to grades online in blackboard since they must submit their semester progress report online by May 1st each year. However, part-time students may still email to request their grades if needed.
