When Can Students Access Their Canvas Course?

Students will see their Canvas classroom when the course is set to a Published status. Courses are automatically published on the Sunday before the course start date. Some faculty may choose to publish their courses to students earlier, or send out information to their class in advance of the first day.
(Contact Students Before the First Day of Class)

When a course has been published to students, the course card will appear on their Dashboard. They can click on the card to enter the Canvas classroom.
