Please visit Account Help Page to check your schedule for your courses' start dates.

What to know about Canvas

  • Canvas accounts are created after you register for classes for the first time or if you have not registered for classes since 2013.
  • You cannot access your Canvas course until the day the class starts. 
  • Online students are expected to log in to Canvas on the first day of class.
  • Google Chrome web browser is the preferred browser to use with Canvas. Some features of Canvas may not function properly in other browsers. To download Google Chrome visit Google's Chrome download page.
  • It is not recommended to use the Canvas Mobile App for your entire course as the mobile app does not have the same capabilities as the browser-based version and you may not be able to do everything that you need to do.

Frequently Asked Questions for Canvas

Instructors provide contact information within their Canvas courses. Please see the Course Syllabus for your instructor's preferred contact method.

When you log in to Canvas, you will see course cards on your Dashboard for courses you are currently enrolled in.

If your courses do not display:

  1. Click the “Courses” icon.

San Juan College’s online courses are not self-paced. Each instructor has a schedule with assignment due dates that must be met. Please consult the course syllabus for these dates. You can also refer to the SJC course schedule for more information about course start and end dates.

NOTE: If your course shows "unpublished," please reach out to your instructor and let them know it is not published and that you are unable to access the course. Courses that have not started yet are not available until the first day - unless the instructor makes them available early. 

Google Chrome is the preferred browser to use with Canvas. Safari and Firefox are also compatible with Canvas. We have found that Internet Explorer, Edge and the Canvas Mobile App do not consistently allow assignment uploads.

Clearing Your Browser Cache

NOTE: If you are having issues accessing the library databases off-campus, please try to clear the cache in your browser and try to access them again.

What is a Browser Cache?

When you navigate to a website, your browser saves pieces of information, such as images and files, within a cache so the web page may load faster the next time you visit that website.

Why do I need to clear my Browser Cache?

In some cases, having stored data in a cache can cause loading problems for a page. For example, if a web editor makes a change on a website and your browser has information for that site stored, the browser will display the old files that it had stored rather than loading the new data. It is a good idea to clear your cache regularly to ensure you are viewing correct information on frequently visited sites and to avoid loading errors.

Instructions for clearing a browser cache vary by device and browser. Please choose from the options below to find the instructions that will work for your preferred browser or device.
