How do I add students to a course section?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
Once you have created sections in your course, you can add students to sections manually or use an SIS import. If your institution uses SIS Imports, you do not need to add any users who are part of your institution's records for the course. They will be added to the course by your admin. You can also edit the sections students are in.
- If you add a student to a course that is not active, the student will be able to see the course listed in his or her Future Enrollment courses. However, the student cannot access the course until it has been published.
- Adding students to a section is a course permission. If you cannot add students to your course, your institution has restricted this feature.
Hover over the user's name and click the Settings icon . Select the Edit Sections  link.
View Section Enrollment
Type the section name to find the section you want to add the user to.
