Enrolling as a TA in a Course in which You Are Enrolled as a Student

It is not possible for you to be both a student and a TA within the same course.  The reason for this is that federal law [FERPA] and University policy both specifically prohibit students enrolled in a class from being able modify their own grades or to view or modify the grades of other students enrolled in that same class. This is why Blackboard automatically verifies and, if necessary, resets each student’s course access permissions several times a day.
