What to do?

I can only offer advice, encouragement, and support for so long. After that, they either fly on their own or crash below the nest.

If you are an Eagle, fly like one! No more excuses.

I don't know if this involves a certain former-froshman, but if it does, keep in mind that Blackboard is often a poor method of keeping tabs on grades. Profs often don't update regularly (or at all) and for some reason their entries don't always reflect the weight they give assignments in generating final grades.

Although it's less of a practice in undergrad, much or most of points available are caught up in the final test or project too.

I may be totally off base here. You of course could have other ways of checking his grades or access to all of his syallabi, and either of these would create a much more reliable image than simply looking at Blackboard.
