How do I make my course available to students?

Making courses available in Canvas is two-fold. 

1.  First, the instructor must say that the class is complete. This is called ""publishing"" the course. 
2.  Once the course is published, the courses automatically open to students at 12:01AM on the first day of class.

Here's how to publish your course:
  • Open Course Setup Checklist
  • Click on the Course Setup Checklist button. The setup checklist will appear in a window at the bottom of the screen.
  • Open Publish Course Option
  • Click on the Publish Course link to open the option of publishing your course.
  • Publish Course
  • Click on the Publish Course button [1].
  • View Course
  • A message will appear at the top of your screen confirming the publishing of your course.
