Canvas Access Policy

Online Access

Students are given access to their online course and materials approximately 24 hours before the start of a course via Canvas, our learning management system.

31-Day Access After Course

Students will continue to have access to their course in Canvas for 31 days after the course end date. After 31 days, the course will disappear from their Dashboard and Courses tab in Canvas. At this time, students will no longer be able to access any course material or submitted material. You are encouraged to download materials before this time. Note that certain materials may not be available for download at the instructor's discretion. Lecture videos are not available for download.

Enroll Early

Note: Enroll at least seven days before your course start date to save your seat. This allows time to prepare for the first class and helps ensure that your course is not canceled due to low enrollment.
