I can't see all of my courses in Canvas. What do I do?

Check with the faculty member to inquire if they are using Canvas for the semester; you may not be missing anything! A faculty member may have chosen not to use the Canvas system for the course in which you are enrolled.

If the faculty member confirms that they are indeed using Canvas for the course:

  1. Check your registration status with the Registrar's Office. Canvas access is updated via student course registration lists four times daily until the end of the "Add" period.
  2. Ask the faculty member to see if the course has been "Published". Once the Canvas course site is ready, it is the responsibility of the faculty member to make the course available to enrolled students.

If you are registered and your faculty member has confirmed the course site is published, on the left-hand menu, click the Courses icon and then click the All Courses link and favorite the courses you need for this semester by clicking the star icon.

Note: Students are not officially enrolled in a course until they have completed the official registration paperwork with the Office of the Registrar.
