  • The online courses may be marked as closed. This is to ensure that the program can maintain roster spots for students in the online program.
    • When searching for classes, make sure the box labeled "Show Open Classes Only" is not checked.
  • Courses are run and managed through Canvas, our online Learning Management System (LMS).
    • Course pages on Canvas are handled separately from enrollment and are managed by faculty.
    • While some Canvas pages may open early, others may not be opened until classes begin. If you are unable to access the Canvas page for a class that you are enrolled in, please contact your course instructor. Please include your CWID in all correspondence.
