Check your "All Courses" page to check course publish status or add the course to the dashboard

To check the "All Courses" page for a course, and favorite a course to add it to the dashboard use the following steps:

  1. Log in to Canvas with your ONID credentials
  2. In Canvas, click on Courses on the left side pane, then All Courses near the bottom of the fly-out menu

Arrow pointing to Courses button in Canvas.

Course not listed on the  "All Courses" page?

For Students

Most registration (Banner) changes are updated into Canvas several times a day, about once per 6 hours. If you have just signed up for a course and it is not listed in Canvas, you may just need to wait a few hours, or overnight, for the changes to appear in Canvas. If you have waited until the following day and the course is still not visible on the "All Courses" page, please contact the Office of the Registrar and verify that you are properly registered for the course. If the Office of the Registrar has confirmed that you are properly registered for the course, please send an email to Canvas@oregonstate.edu with the course information for which you are registered.

For Instructors

Most Banner changes are updated into Canvas several times a day, about once per 6 hours. If your departmental Banner administrator just added you as the instructor of a course, you may need to wait a few hours, or overnight, for the changes to appear in Canvas. If you have verified with your Banner administrator that you have been added as the instructor for the course and it is still not visible on your "All Courses" page in Canvas, please send an email to Canvas@oregonstate.edu with the course information.
