Check if your course is listed in Courses > All Courses. If your course is not listed in All Courses, contact FIU Canvas Help.

If your course doesn’t appear in your Dashboard, you should ensure your course is marked as favorite in All Courses.

FIU Financial aid: There may be a concern with your financial aid package. That means there may be a hold on your account disabling you from accessing your course.

Attendance: Attendance matters can impact course access, so make sure to contact your professor if you are running into attendance problems.

The semester ended: Once the semester is over you may no longer have access to specific courses. If you need access to specific files, you can access them through your files in Canvas. If you need access to other information reach out to the FIU Canvas Help team.
