  • Canvas admins are not automatically given access to the admin features in Canvas Catalog. Catalog admins can manage all course and program listings in Catalog, as well as user registration, reports, and promotions.

    If a Canvas admin needs to be an admin in Canvas Catalog, you will need to enable the catalog permission for the admin's role at the account level. For more information about permissions, please see the Canvas Admin Guide.

    Note: The catalog permission only appears in Permissions for institutions that have a Canvas Catalog account and does not apply to subaccount roles.

  • When you sign up for Canvas Catalog, you must also have a Canvas Account. Your Canvas Account is the foundation for your catalog and houses all the courses that you create as part of your course or program listings.

    Catalog also uses the data within Canvas courses to determine the completion state of each catalog course or listing.

  • If you want to enroll in a listing but enrollment is closed, you may be able to add your name to a wait list and be automatically enrolled if a spot opens. You can remove yourself from the wait list at any time.

    Spots can become available if a student drops a course or program, or if an administrator increases the enrollment limit.

    You can manage your wait list courses or programs from the catalog dashboard.

    Note: You must have a Catalog account to add your name to the wait list for a course or program. You may be asked to create an account if you are not already logged in.

    How do I use my institution's Catalog?

    Catalog courses and programs are easily searchable. You can use the Search field on the home page, or just browse the catalog listings.

    Note: The steps for searching and viewing a course or program listing are the same regardless of catalog design. Your catalog view may be customized for your institution.
