There are a few reasons why you may not see your course in UB Learns:
If you are a TA in a course, your instructor needs to manually enroll you.
The course menu may be hidden. To restore it, look at the left edge of your course site about half way down and click the gray arrow (Show Course Menu).
You can change your notification settings from your profile page (your name will be listed) or the Activity Stream page. You can access both of these pages from the main UB Learns menu.
The Digital Drop Box tool is no longer available; instructors may use the Assignment tool to manage student submissions.
Many databases are limited to UB students and they are set up to recognize the IP address or to route the user to a proxy site for authentication.

This could be caused by one of the following:
Contact your instructor to determine the reason the icon of pencil and paper is showing. If necessary, the instructor can reset the test or assignment.

UB Learns grades are available until the first business day after grades are due for the semester.
This may not be the final grade for your course. Official grades are found in HUB.
