How do I use the Student Dashboard in Catalog?

When you log in to Canvas Catalog, you can view your enrolled or wait listed courses and programs in the Student Dashboard.

The Student Dashboard displays your enrolled courses by status, and allows you to access the Catalog listings to enroll in additional courses or programs.

Note: Canvas Catalog admins can restrict students from viewing a course before and after the set course dates. If you do not see a course in your Student Dashboard before or after the set course dates, it may have been hidden by the Catalog admin.
