How do I begin a catalog course or program?
You can begin your current in-progress catalog courses and programs from your Student Dashboard. However, you cannot begin a course until the course start date. If your course is part of a program, you may be required to complete one course before beginning another.
Note: If you enroll in a Catalog program, you must begin each course in Catalog. Canvas does not enroll you in a course or display the course in Canvas until you click the Begin Course button for each course requirement in the program.
Open Student Dashboard
Click the User Menu link . Then click the Student Dashboard option 
View In Progress Tab
In the catalog dashboard, view the In Progress tab.
To begin a program, locate the name of the program. In the Requirements list , locate the first course and click the Begin Course button .
Note: If all courses in the Requirements list include a Begin Course button, you can complete the courses in any order.
