Q: I cannot see all my courses in Canvas

A: Please ensure that when you go to Canvas, you click on courses, and then 'All Courses.' Please also star your current year courses as last year's could possibly still be on there.
Schedules are still being updated and it will take 24-48 hours for those schedules to reflect in Canvas. In the meantime, please email your teachers so that you can still have the necessary links to access the course materials.
