Canvas Basics for UW-Superior Students

Information for students about using the Canvas learning management system.

Locating Courses

Upon logging into Canvas, you’ll typically see the Canvas Dashboard, but it may not show all of your current class enrollments. It’s important to visit the Canvas All Courses page to view a full list of your Canvas enrollments, including newly-added courses and concluded courses from previous terms.

Canvas Student Guide: How do I view all my Canvas courses?

If you recently enrolled in a class, or you were just added from the waitlist, you may not be added to the corresponding Canvas course until the next morning. It can take up to 24 hours for students to gain access to a Canvas course after they’re enrolled.
