Canvas | I Can’t See My Course

Possible reasons you might not see your course:

Registered course(s) are not showing up in Canvas -

  •  In Canvas, check All Courses under Future Enrollments.  
    Courses not published by the instructor remain under Future Enrollments until released.  ​​You should receive a notification when your course is published.
  •  In Testudo, if the instructor is listed as TBA, no course space has been created. 
    Once an instructor is listed in Testudo, a course space will be generated and listed under Future Enrollments until released.

Recent drop/adds -  course enrollment adds or drops will take 2-3 hours to process

New student registrations - it can take 1-2 days to set up a Directory ID and UID and have it recognized for enrollment in courses.  Access to a course can take up to 24 hours.

Changes to Directory ID, or UID - Former IDs will drop out of a course(s), and can take 2-3 hours for a new ID to be recognized.
