Canvas by Instructure

CANVAS ACCESS

New Canvas accounts are created about ONE week before the term begins. If students register after that time, it can take up to 24 hours after the time of registration for Canvas accounts to be created.

COURSE ACCESS

In most cases, students will have access to courses at 12:01 am the first class day.

CANVAS STUDENT CONNECTION COURSE

All students should be enrolled in the Canvas Student Connection course. The course provides an orientation on using Canvas, browser compatibility, setting up your notifications, etc. Please review the course before your semester begins.

Attention! Online Students

Students MUST actively participate by completing an academic assignment required by the instructor by the official census date. Students who do not actively participate in an academically related activity will be reported as "never attended" and dropped from the course. Contact your instructor if you have any questions about this policy.
