How do I sign up for an appointment in Canvas?

Your professor may create online sign-ups for office hours, group meetings, or individual conferences using the Canvas calendar. You can access these sign-ups by clicking on the Calendar icon on the left-hand Canvas menu, or by looking on the Syllabus page in the specific course site.

Signing-up Using the Global Calendar

  1. In the left-hand Canvas menu, access the Canvas Calendar by clicking the Calendar icon.
  2. To the right of the calendar, click the Find Appointment button.
  3. Choose the course for which you want to sign up for an appointment and click Submit. The available time slots will appear on the calendar; faded time slots indicate that the appointment has already been taken.
  4. Click the time slot you want to sign up for, then click Reserve.

More information on using the Global Calendar to sign up for an appointment can be found at the Canvas Student Guide.

Signing-up Using the Syllabus Page

  1. Enter the Canvas site of the course for which you want to sign up for an appointment.
  2. In the left menu, click the Syllabus link.
  3. Click the link in the Course Summary for sign-ups. It should be called "Office Hours", "Sign-ups", or something similar.
  4. Choose your appointment time, then click Reserve.
