You will not have access to Canvas the same day you register for a course. If the semester has started, it can take 1-2 business days after registration for you to be added to your Canvas course. Otherwise, your Canvas access will begin on the first day of class.
Please try these troubleshooting steps if you are certain you are properly enrolled in the course:
- Check your full course list in Canvas by clicking on the "Courses" button on the left-side navigation menu, then click the link for "All Courses."
- Courses > All Courses
- Be sure there is a star next to each course you want to be added to your dashboard.
If you do not see your course:
- Check to see if you are enrolled in a late-start course.
- Contact your instructor to ensure the course is published.
Your password is the same password you used to register for your courses using the SIS Portal.
