Canvas (Enrollment) - Student Enrolled in a Course Today, but Cannot See Course in Canvas

If a student registers for in a course in the Student Information System (PeopleSoft) one day, their course will not show up in Canvas until the next day.

This is expected behavior at all University of Wisconsin institutions participating in the Digital Learning Environment (except for UW Eau Claire). This is because the PeopleSoft to Canvas data transfer runs as a nightly bulk process. 


The solution for students stuck in this situation is to wait 24 hours for their new enrollment to make it to Canvas. 

Only UW Eau Claire runs events-based data transfer from PeopleSoft to Canvas, which updates enrollment data in Canvas every 15 minutes or so.
