Canvas - Why can't I access my Course as a student?

Sometimes there are a few reasons why you cannon access your courses.

  • If you are self-enrolling in a course using a join code or URL, you may not have completed the registration process. Check your email for information from your instructor as to how to enroll in your course. 
  • If NMSU enrolled you in your course, your enrollment may not have been set up properly. Please contact your instructor(s) for assistance.
  • Each course is associated with a specific access date. Depending on the date associated with the course, you may not yet be able to view your course. 
  • Courses must be published by your institution before you can access them. If a course is not accessible to you in your course list, it may not be published. 
  • Access to concluded courses may be restricted by NMSU. 
  • Confirm your browser is up-to-date. Outdated browsers cannot support Canvas. 

If you have any questions, come by the Help Desk at Hardman & Jacobs Undergraduate Learning Center Room 105, call 646-1840, or email us at
