Why is my Course Listed as a Past Course in Canvas?

Question

Why is my course listed as a past course in Canvas?

Answer

It is likely that the course end date has been set for a date in the past and thus the course is showing up under Past Enrollments. 

For Instructors

  1. Log in to Canvas.
  2. Navigate to the Canvas Course experiencing the issue. 
  3. Select Settings. 
  4. Select end date in the future for the course under Course Details tab.
  5. Select Update Course Details.

If your course is showing up under past enrollments and you believe this to be an error, please contact your instructor.
