Canvas Basics for UW-Superior Students

Please review the following information about using our Canvas system. We share this information with new UW-Superior students to ensure they’re able to access and utilize their Canvas courses successfully. As you read through this guide, please keep the following notes in mind:

  • Students can login to Canvas using their UW-Superior credentials via our Learn@UW-Superior Canvas login page. If you need assistance logging into Canvas or resetting your UW-Superior passwords, please contact the Technology Services Help Desk.
  • Canvas data is stored indefinitely, but students you will only be able to login to Canvas as long as you’re an enrolled student and have active UWS credentials. Students have access to their email and other campus accounts for 180 days beyond university separation. For more information about this timeline, please contact the Technology Services Help Desk.
  • UW-Superior does not require that instructors use Canvas for all classes. Canvas courses are available to all instructors, for every class, but instructors do not need to make their Canvas courses available to students.
  • If you have a question about your Canvas course, we recommend checking in with your instructor first, to ensure they’re aware of the issue.
  • Canvas Support is available 24/7/365 via the Help menu in Canvas. When contacting Canvas Support, we recommend using the Live Chat support option to make the support process more efficient. The Live Chat generates a downloadable transcript of the conversation and allows the Support Tech to look up your user account to see your course list.
