Removing a course from my dashboard

Removing a course from my dashboard

Your Canvas Dashboard displays both active and favorited courses. Active courses are courses that are published and that are within the course start and end dates. Favorited courses are courses you have starred.

Additionally, if you have dropped a course, it may take up to 24 hours for your enrollment status to update in Canvas. If a dropped course still displays in your Dashboard after this time, you should confirm with your institution that you are fully dropped from the course.

View Past Enrollments

You may be able to view a list of your past enrollments in your Courses List. If a course in the Past Enrollments list is favorited, you can click the Favorite icon to unfavorite the course.

If you have a course that has ended but is still on the dashboard, it is likely that it is missing an end date in the course settings. As a student, you cannot change this.

If you’d like to remove it, your instructor will need to add an end date. Contact your instructor for assistance using the Inbox or through the help menu.

Alternatively, you can use course favoriting to determine which courses appear on your dashboard.

Note: Courses in the Past Enrollments list cannot be favorited.
