How long do students have access to course content after the quarter ends?

Canvas is set up so students have read-only access to content in past courses indefinitely. After the quarter ends, past courses can be found by going to the Courses menu, clicking the All Courses link and scrolling to the Past Enrollments section. However, there are a few exceptions.

  • Class recordings are not available to students after the quarter ends, unless special exceptions are made (incompletes, for example). Instructors can request extension of Panopto video access.
  • Course instructors have the option to restrict access to their entire course after the quarter ends. Students who need access to course content that is no longer available should contact their instructors.
