Course Access Dates for Students
Canvas courses are created for all academic-graded sections, but using a Canvas course is an instructor’s choice.
If your Canvas course is not published after the first day of classes, check with your instructor to see what resources they will use.
- Courses usually open the Friday before each semester starts
- Courses close a few weeks after each semester ends
- Summer is treated as one big semester
