Access to course content after the quarter ends

Canvas is set up so students have read-only access to content in past courses indefinitely, so long as their SUNet ID is active. 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). If you need extended access to videos, please contact your instructor.
  • Course instructors have the option to restrict access to their entire course after the quarter ends. If you do not see your course in the Past Enrollments section and need access to course content, please contact your instructor.
  • Departments can restrict access to courses in a particular subject after the quarter ends. For example, Math courses are not available after the end of the quarter. Instructors have the option to change this, if this wish.
