How do I view the Canvas Dashboard through Catalog?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I view the Canvas Dashboard through Catalog?

Once you have completed registration for a Catalog listing, you can complete the listing course or courses within Canvas. You can access your Canvas with your catalog courses from the Catalog User Menu.

Open Canvas from Catalog

Open Canvas from Catalog

After you've logged in to your catalog account, click the User Menu drop-down menu [1]. Then click the Canvas link [2].

View Canvas Dashboard

View your Canvas User Dashboard, which contains an overview of all activity in your Canvas account.

To view or begin a specific Canvas course, in Global Navigation, click the Courses link.

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 your Canvas dashboard until you click the Begin Course button for each course requirement in the program.
