Canvas, Roster Uploads
This page has information about when rosters are loaded into Canvas
Rosters will begin to be loaded into Canvas spaces on the Thursday before classes begin.
It can take up to three business days for changes to be made to a roster due to the need for all systems (such as Banner and Active Directory) to sync up in Canvas. If a student needs more immediate access to a course space, they should contact their instructor and request to be manually added. The instructions on how to manually add a student can be found on the following article: Canvas, Adding a user
Note: Course spaces must be published to be accessed by students. For more information on how to publish a course space, visit this Canvas page.
