For Students: Welcome to UVACanvas!

UVACanvas is a digital space for teaching and learning where you can explore course content, submit assignments, view grades, and more.

Getting Started

Find Your Course Sites

You may be able to find your course sites on your UVACanvas Dashboard or under the Courses menu. If one of your courses does not display there:

  • Mark Your Courses as Favorites.
    1. Open the Courses menu and select All Courses at the bottom.
    2. Mark your desired courses as favorites by following the steps in How do I customize my Courses list as a student?
    3. After doing this, unfavorited sites will no longer be displayed on your Dashboard, but can be accessed from the All Courses page.
  • Check if Your Course Site Has Been Published.
    The All Courses page will display all of the UVACanvas sites where you have been added. Some of these sites may be unpublished and not available to students.
