Why You Don’t Have Access to Your Courses

You can’t sign in to your courses on the Canvas site if your teacher has not allowed students to access them. See reasons below:

  1. Teacher Permission:
    • You cannot sign in to your courses on the Canvas site if your teacher has not enabled student access. Ensure your teacher has allowed access before attempting to log in.
  2. Viewing Published Courses:
    • Newly published courses will not appear on your dashboard until your teacher has permitted access. Check with your teacher regarding when the course will be accessible.
  3. First-Day Access:
    • Although all course materials and resources are uploaded to the course on the first day, students may not have access to everything immediately. Teachers control when specific materials and resources become available.
  4. Canvas Modules and Flow Control:
    • ASU Canvas requirements and prerequisites, including other Canvas Modules, allow staff to manage the progression of students through the course. This ensures that students complete necessary prerequisites before advancing to subsequent modules.
