Student Resources

Canvas is a new course management system that your instructors may be using for your course sites. You can access Canvas from a web browser or via the Canvas Student App (Android / iOS) for smartphones and tablets.  To access Canvas log in with your NetID and NetID password.

Student Support Guides:

Not all instructors use Canvas, so you may not be able to access all of your courses through Canvas

If you are not able to determine if your course is on Canvas, contact your instructor directly and ask if Canvas will be used for the course.  You can look for your instructor's contact information in the Georgetown University online directory.

If you are missing a course in Canvas, please check My Access to verify that you are officially enrolled in the course. 

Canvas relies on course listing and enrollment data from the registrar offices. Courses and enrollments must first be added through the registrar's system (MyAccess) before they automatically appear in Canvas. Changes and updates in the registrar's system are not immediately reflected in Canvas and will be present within 24 hours. If you cannot login to MyAccess, or your course enrollment is missing in MyAccess, please contact: 

Contact the Canvas Support team if you have technical problems within Canvas.
