Canvas, Roster Uploads, Course Available
Overview of when student rosters are loaded into Canvas courses.
Registrar-affiliated class rosters are uploaded into Canvas course spaces once a day after 1:30 PM on non-holiday weekdays.
Instructors, Teaching Assistants, Course Builders/Designers
A newly-created course space may take up to 48 hours before its roster is uploaded, depending on when the course was created between the scheduled daily roster load.
If you have a need for a roster to be uploaded immediately, contact the Technology Services Help Desk.
Note: For Canvas spaces, the space must be published before students can have access to it. Read on to learn more about publishing a Canvas space at Canvas, Publishing a course.
StudentsYou may not see an Canvas course space for a few reasons:
- Your instructor may have hidden the course space from students while he or she adds course content.
- The course space may not have been created yet.
- The course may not be taught on Canvas and is instead on Moodle (learn.illinois.edu). Check your instructor's syllabus to see if an alternate website is listed.
