If you can find your list of courses, but one is missing, there are several possible reasons:

  • If you recently registered for classes, wait a few hours.  It takes 2-6 hours from the time you register until your Canvas course becomes visible. 
  • If you are on the waiting list, you won't see the Canvas course. You have to be registered to see the course.
  • The Canvas Dashboard may only be showing *some* of your courses.  To see all your courses, click Courses | All courses. Only courses that are published (meaning open to students) can appear on the Canvas dashboard.
  • Your teacher may not be using Canvas as the class website.  Contact your teacher to find out what website, if any, is being used.
  • If it's in the middle of the semester and you haven't logged in to Canvas in quite a while, your teacher may have dropped you from the course.  Contact your teacher.
  • If you have a late start class, wait until closer to the class start date.
  • If you want to review a class from a previous semester, it won't be available.  Contact your teacher to request access.  Your teacher can work with the Online Ed support team to get access for you.

Contact the MPC Online Education Help Desk if the above suggestions don't solve the problem.
