why don't my summer classes show up on my dashboard
To see if your institution has you enrolled in the classes, you can click on Courses then All Courses. That will take you to a list of all your courses. Find the course you want to show on your dashboard and click the star next to the course. Anything with the star filled in will show on your dashboard. To remove a course from the dashboard, click the filled star and it will clear. When you are done, click Dashboard again and the changes will be effective.
If you don't see the course you are looking for on the all course list, you will need to contact your institution.
karen dierst Welcome to the worldwide Canvas Community. I will add to Teri's excellent advice on adding a course to the Dashboard that if the course is not published yet, it cannot be added to the Dashboard. Take a look at this documentation page, under the heading called Manage Courses to see this: How do I customize my Courses list as a student?
It all depends on your institution's policy's regarding this. Some leave it up to the individual instructor to publish their own course site while others do not. But indeed, as Teri stated, if the course is not appearing at all you will need to contact someone.
