What if there aren’t any courses under the “My Courses” tab?
It typically takes 3-4 days from the day you register until your course appears under the “My Courses” Tab .
If it has been more than 3-4 days and the course still doesn’t appear, contact your instructor.
What do I do if I get an error message while using Canvas?
This does happen occasionally, so do not panic. The Canvas servers are located in Richmond and they do go down or get overly busy during peak times of the semester. In some cases Canvas may still be accessed using the direct link https://learn.vccs.edu/login/ldap If you continue to have errors and cannot log in, please visit the MYSouthwest Helpdesk.
