Enrolled in a Canvas-delivered course at more than one campus?

IMPORTANT:  At this time, students taking "Canvas" courses at more than one college can only be logged into one college Canvas system at a time within the same browser.

Example:  If you're taking one class (on Canvas) at South and one class (on Canvas) at Central, these are two completely separate LMS' (learning management systems).  You'll only be able to see the Canvas course associated with that college when you're logged in to that colleges' Canvas system. 

So, pay close attention to the banner at the top of Canvas to identify which college system you're logged in to. 

IMPORTANT: For "how to use Canvas" questions (examples: "how to use the discussion forum" or "how to submit an assignment", "see my grades", etc.) please always start with our Canvas' Student Guides for help and/or contact your instructor for assistance.

If the instructions listed above aren't what you need and you still need help, please email your campus Canvas support person and include your full name, Student ID Number (SID), course name and item number and what you're experiencing in your email

We will do our best to assist you and your teacher within one business day of your emailed request.
