How do I view my Canvas courses?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). This lesson may include two images for specific steps to show the difference between the two designs. Unless otherwise indicated, the functionality and location of the components remain the same. The view available to you is determined by your institution.
After logging into Canvas, you can view your current, past, and future enrollment courses in Canvas.
Note: Some institutions may restrict the option to view future enrollment courses before the start date and/or access concluded courses after the course has ended.
View Course Categories
Courses are organized into three categories: My Courses , Past Enrollments , and Future Enrollments .
View Course Status
Each category may display different types of links. Courses that are available to you are listed in blue text . These courses have been published and include a link to the course. To open a course, click the name of the course.
Courses that are within the current term dates but are not yet available are listed in gray text and include an unpublished tag . These courses have not been published.
Each course includes your enrollment status . Statuses can be student, teacher, TA, observer, designer, or a custom role as created by your institution.
If a course includes a term date , the term date displays next to the course name.
View My Courses
My Courses  are courses that are part of the current semester or term. However, depending on access settings for a course, My Courses can also display courses that have not yet started or are unpublished.
Note: If you are enrolled in groups, the My Groups section  will appear and display any groups within your current courses. You can view all your groups in your groups list.
View Past Enrollments
Courses under the Past Enrollments heading are courses that have concluded but are still available as a read-only archived course. Prior users can view course material and grades but cannot submit any assignments.
Note: Some institutions may restrict students from viewing past enrollments. If a past enrollment does not appear in your Past Enrollments list, the course is not available for viewing.
View Future Enrollments
Future Enrollments are courses that will be made available as part of an upcoming term or specific course start date.
Future courses may be published or unpublished. However, some institutions may restrict students from viewing published courses before the start date. If you are student and a future published course does not include a link, the course cannot be viewed until the start date.
If a future course does include a link, you can view course content but cannot fully participate in the course until the start date. Full participation includes submitting assignments and replying to discussions.
