Why is there a Exception Process?

Students who are added to a Canvas or Wordpress site who have not yet registered, have been 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 an LMS exception process in order to provide better clarity.

The Standard/College Enrollment Practice

Student logins will load into curricular sites (Canvas or Wordpress) once their registration has been completed. The Academic Division determined that students should only get access to resources once they have registered for an offering. Students not registered will have the following experience; in Canvas the student will not be able to access any part of the site for the offering. In Wordpress this could mean the student would not have access to some protected resources if those have already been setup by the faculty.

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.
