Don't lose your place in class!

  • Check in with your instructor via email between Monday and Wednesday of the first week of class.
  • If you do not email your instructor between Monday and Wednesday of the first week, you could lose your space in the class or miss important class work.
  • In order to email your instructor use the school directory.

When can I start my class?

  • You will have access to your online courses on the first day of term. Your instructor may contact you with login information and dates.   

Are you adding a course after the first week of instruction?

If your instructor has given you an add code to register for a closed course,  you need to take ONE of the following steps.
  • For Canvas classes:
    • You must complete your MyCoast registration using this add code. You should have access to your online class within 48 hours of registering. If not, create a support ticket
  • For Non-Canvas classes:
    • Some faculty choose to use other websites for their course content If your instructor does not use Canvas, email the instructor directly for instructions.
