After enrolling in a class, how long does it take to show in your dashboard on Canvas?

Good afternoon, @ceg2925 ...

You'll need to ask someone at your school about this.  Each school that utilizes Canvas as their LMS (Learning Management System) sets their own policies and rules on when you'd have access to your Canvas course(s).  For example, some schools have systems in place that if you enroll in a course via your school's Registration department, you might get access almost immediate or within the hour.  Other schools have a set schedule where names are sent from their SIS (Student Information System) to Canvas every few hours or only a couple times a day.  It all depends on the school.  Once you are enrolled in the course within Canvas, it is up to the instructor of the course to "publish" the course...making it ready for you and your classmates to access.

I hope this will help a bit.  Sing out if you have any other questions about this...thanks!  Take care, stay safe, and be well.
