Canvas Basics for UW-Superior Students

Information for students about using the Canvas learning management system.

Accessing Past Courses in Canvas

If a course is available for access, it will be listed under All Courses. If it is not listed there, please contact your instructor first, as they will likely need to update your Canvas course to grant students access. Canvas Support will not be able to change Canvas course settings without permission from that course’s instructor.

However, please note that instructors are not required to grant students access to a concluded Canvas course (like those from a previous term). Students should download and backup local copies of their work while their courses are still open. Students should reach out to Canvas Support via the Canvas Help menu if they need assistance downloading their assignment submissions.
