Canvas

How to login to Canvas (PDF)

Once logged into Canvas, you will see your classes in Dashboard. If you don't see all your classes listed, don't worry. Some instructors don’t make their courses available until the first day of the semester, while others make them available earlier. It’s a good idea to begin checking Canvas and your student email at least a week before the semester begins, and always be sure to log in to your classes on the first day of the semester!

WebAdvisor?

WebAdvisor is a one-stop-shop for accessing student information. Here, you can find your class schedule, register for classes, check your Financial Aid status, view your transcript, pay fees, and more! WebAdvisor Basics (PDF)

Attend your classes on the first day of school. If you are taking an online class, be sure to access your courses in Canvas through My Portal the first day of the semester. You may be dropped from a class if you do not attend the first class meeting or do not access your online courses in Canvas. 

If you are waitlisted for a class when the semester starts, you still need to attend the first day. The instructor will give you an “Authorization Code” to enroll in the class if there is room available. If you are waitlisted for an online course, you will need to email the instructor to see if there is room for you to enroll in the class. If there is, the instructor will email you an “Authorization Code” to enroll in the class.  

Follow up with a counselor to develop a Student Education Plan - Comprehensive (SEPC) before you register for the next semester. Schedule an appointment online or call (559) 675-4141 (Madera campus) or (559) 683-3940 (Oakhurst campus).
