I need help with UART5 on TWR-K60N512

I'm having problems working with UART5 to communicate with the pc through USB. I'm trying to send a message to the pc, therefore i'm only using Tx. The problem is that i'm trying to write in some registers but the values don't change. Also, i don't know how to set the baud rate to 9600 bps.
I would appreciate some help. The program is what follows:



#include "derivative.h" /* include peripheral declarations */


int main(void)


  int i;

  uint8_t message[] = "Hello World";


  //enable clock to port E

  SIM_SCGC5 |= 1<<13;


  //enable clock to UART5 module

  SIM_SCGC1 |= 1<<11;


  //set pin 8 from port E as UART5_Tx

  PORTE_PCR8 |= 0x00000300;


  //Disable Receiver and Transmitter to change UART settings

  UART5_C2 &= ~0x0c;


  // Configure the UART for 8-bit mode, no parity

  UART5_C1 = 0;


  //Set the baud rate          - > I don't know how to set the baud rate to 9600 bps

  UART5_BDL = 4; //UART_BDL_SBR(9600);

  UART5_BDH = 4;


  //Enable Transmitter

  UART5_C2 |= 1<<3;


  //Writing in the transmitter data register

  for (i = 0; message[i] != '\0'; i++) {

  UART5_D = message[i];                 - > the register doesn't change and i don't know why



  return 0;
