Help for Faculty and Staff

Canvas allows us to create a living class list. When students enroll in your course via Registration they are added to your course that same day. Please note that this does not mean they have immediate access to your course content.

When will students be added to my course and when will they have access?

Here is how this works:

  • Faculty still control access by publishing the course when they are ready.
  • Students admitted to an on-going course will be added the Friday of Evaluation Week of the prior quarter. For example, Winter Quarter students joining an on-going Fall offering will be added the Friday of Evaluation Week of Fall Quarter.

What if I see student names I do not recognize?

  • The People list in Canvas is live data, and for a student to appear in your course they must have registered for it or be on your waitlist.
  • Students who drop your course will have their enrollment concluded automatically.

Waitlisted Students

  • Waitlisted students do not have access to your course until they are officially registered.
  • Academic Computing can help you add waitlisted students to your course temporarily. Please contact us at http://help.evergreen.edu

Who Faculty Can Add as Users

Faculty can add users to their curricular sites in the Canvas role of Observer.

Faculty do not have the ability to add users in a Student, TA, or Faculty role. This workflow is in place to prevent any FERPA issues.

Please contact Academic Technologies via help.evergreen.edu if you would like someone added as a Program Assistant, TA or fellow Faculty.

If you need to have a student enrolled to your site who is not yet registered for your offering, please submit an LMS Access Exception Request via help.evergreen.edu.
