When will my courses be available in HuskyCT?
The availability of courses in UConn HuskyCT LMS varies. Generally, courses are available by the first class meeting date.

What if a course I’m taking is not listed in HuskyCT?
Courses are offered in HuskyCT at the discretion of the instructor. Therefore, all courses at UConn Health may not have an associated site.
If you are officially registered in a course that is not listed after the start date of the semester, inquire with your instructor.
If you were recently added to a course, allow up to 24 hours for the LMS to receive the update, before contacting your instructor. If 24 hours have passed and your instructor has confirmed the course is offered, contact ITS Help Center.
What if my exam attempt in HuskyCT was interrupted and the system won’t allow me to finish?
Quizzes/exams can only be reset by your instructor. If you have exceeded the allotted number of attempts, it will be necessary for you to contact your instructor. Note that additional attempts are offered solely at the discretion of your instructor.
What if I can’t find an assignment, exam, or other content items in my HuskyCT course?
Availability and placement of tests, assignments, and other content is maintained by your instructor. Sometimes, instructors will place conditions on releasing content (start/end dates, prerequisites, etc.). Consult your instructor for guidance on navigating the course and/or accessing specific materials.
What if I uploaded the wrong assignment and the system won’t allow me to re-submit?
The number of attempts permitted for an assignment is set by your instructor. If you have uploaded the wrong file for an assignment, you contact your instructor directly.
