Student Resources

Some things you should know before starting your semester in Canvas.

Most Spring 2023 courses officially start on Monday, January 9th. They should show up on your Canvas dashboard on the first day of classes and only after your instructors publish them.

Similarly, remember second block courses will be available on Monday, March 13th, 2022.

For information about COVID Safety, view these Student Expectations posted by Academic Affairs.

Stay Notified!

Review your notification settings for your Canvas account to ensure that you stay notified of any changes to your courses. We recommend changing the notification setting for Announcements to “Notify immediately.”

Your Course List

You can view your Spring 2023 courses by clicking on the Courses icon canvas courses navigation icon  , then "All Courses," and scrolling down to the bottom of the list where it says "Future Enrollments." After the first Monday, your active courses should pop up on your current course list.

Note: your upcoming courses are best displayed from the website when accessed with your internet browser, as opposed to the Canvas for Students mobile app, which has limited display options.

You can add or remove courses from your dashboard by clicking the star icon next to a course in your list but only if the course has been published and the start date has passed. If you want to remove a course from your dashboard, just click the star icon and it will no longer appear.

Textbook Access

Many textbooks now offer access via your Canvas courses. If you run into access problems with your textbooks, look for technical support contact info in your syllabus or course module. The textbook companies are the experts when it comes to solving access issues as our access at WSU Online is limited.
