If you login to Canvas and do not see your upcoming semester’s Canvas course, you will need to request your course be “flagged” through our Course Flagging Online Form.
Click here to access the form.  Flagging will allow the new course to interact with SIS and also gives you instructor access.
Once the course is “flagged”, it may take 24-48 hours to show-up. The course will not be available to students until you “Publish” it. Canvas Basic Training is required to teach a Canvas course.
