What is Canvas?

Canvas is the campus learning management system (LMS), used by instructors and students as the online hub of instructional activity. Students use it to manage their course requirements, find course materials, submit homework, assess their course progress, and communicate with instructors and classmates about course assignments and requirements. Canvas can be used to supplement in-person lectures, or to manage blended/hybrid or fully online courses. It is hosted in the cloud, and works comfortably on mobile devices.

Purchase your Textbooks

There may be reading and/or other assignments required prior to the first night of class, therefore we recommend you purchase your textbooks as soon as possible.

Textbook information can be found in the syllabus (find your class in Canvas), or on the bookstore website. Speak to your enrollment counselor if you have questions about your textbooks.
