Course Merge - BeachBoard Support

Cross-listed and multiple-sectioned BeachBoard course enrollments can be combined to save instructors' time by giving them the ability to communicate and post content in just one course.

The Course Merge process combines the student enrollments from one or more sections (“Source” courses) into a “new" course. Once merged, students and instructors will access the "new" course only.

  • Enrollment, not content is merged in the course merge process.
  • After courses are merged, content can be copied to the new course.
  • If requesting a course merge of multiple courses, all instructors of those courses must consent.
  • It may take up to 48 hours to process a course merge.
