Adding / Removing Courses to Your Dashboard

If you’re registered for a course, and it’s within two weeks before the term starts, you should have access to the course in Canvas.

New courses may not appear on your Canvas dashboard automatically. If this is the case, follow these steps to add a course to your Dashboard. Also included are instructions for removing a course from your Dashboard. As a reminder, non-online Nursing students receive access to a course in Canvas two weeks before a term starts.

To add a course to your Dashboard

1. Log in to Canvas.
2. Click Courses from the left-hand navigation menu.
3. Click All Courses.

4. Click the gray star next to the course you want added to your Dashboard. The star turns gold, and appears on your Dashboard. Typically, if you don’t have any courses favorited / starred in Canvas, they all appear on your Dashboard. Once you click the star next to one course, only favorited / starred courses appear on your Dashboard. Favorite / star settings will be reflected on the Canvas iPad app.
