The Standard/College Enrollment Practice]

Student logins will load into closed LMS sites (Canvas or Wordpress) upon registration. Faculty should not be able to add students manually or by override in Banner to closed Canvas or Wordpress sites and Academic Technology staff should not accommodate these requests for exceptions directly from faculty. The value is that students should not be getting access to resources before they have registered and committed to paying tuition for the educational knowledge and resources they are about to experience.

Why is there a Exception Process?

Students who are added to a Canvas or Wordpress site who have not yet registered, have been increasingly confused into thinking their registration is complete. In order to provide a more predictable and understandable process for students, the Academic Division has chosen to implement a new LMS exception process in order to provide this clarirty.

What is the Exception Process

All exceptions (e.g. programs, contracts,wait-listed or visiting students, other, etc.) for access should go through an academic approval process initiated via a help ticket using the subject line “LMS Exception Request."

Once approved, the student will be added to your Canvas and/or WordPress site and you will be notified.
