IMPORTANT NOTES about Canvas access:

  • Students will automatically have a Canvas account created for them when they are admitted.  Not all classes use the Canvas system. Check with your instructor about the use of Canvas in your course.
  • Students should be able to log in and access their Canvas courses the first week of the semester, once your instructor publishes the course.
  • An instructor must publish a course before a student will see it listed under Courses.  Students with no published courses will see the Home link in Canvas instead of Courses.
