Will You Contact Me Before My Course Starts?

Congratulations on taking an Online Learning course!

After you register for a course, here's the sequence of events.

  1. After your registration, you will receive a couple of emails from us with information about your student ID and username, how to set up your password, and how to log in to Canvas.

  2. The Sunday before your course officially begins, you will receive a third email to help you get ready for your first day of class. At that time, you should also see your course in your Canvas Dashboard. Please log in to Canvas the Sunday before your class begins to make sure everything is working as expected. You can email your teacher or if you have any questions.

  3. If the course name hasn't appeared by the Sunday before the course is due to begin, contact us at

Although you may be able to log into Canvas, by default your course won't show up on your Dashboard until the Sunday before your class begins. Some faculty may choose to publish their courses earlier, in which case they will reach out with more directions.

Wait! How do I log in? 

If your course is about to start, but you are not sure how to log in, contact us at It's usually a good idea to get into your course before the first official day. Many online courses have an assignment due the first day of class.
