Do waitlisted students have access to my Canvas course?

Waitlisted students have access to a Canvas course within 24 hours of being added to the waitlist. They will be able to see all course content that enrolled students can see. Additionally, waitlisted students can also submit assignments on Canvas.

If the waitlisted student is removed from the Axess, he/she will be removed from the Canvas site within 24 hours. If the student was manually added to the Canvas site, they will need to be manually removed.

If you happen to need content, such as assignment submissions, from the waitlisted student, you will need to manually add the student back to the course, retrieve the content, and then delete the student from the course again.
