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 typically not show up in Canvas until the next day.

This is expected behavior for most University of Wisconsin institutions (except for UW Madison) who run nightly bulk processes between PeopleSoft and Canvas. 


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

As of October 2021, only UW Eau Claire and UW Superior run events-based data transfer from PeopleSoft to Canvas, which updates enrollment data in Canvas every 15 minutes or so.
