Where do I see information about my course?

We use a learning management system called Canvas.   You can use your GCTS username and password to log in here.

I’ve logged into Canvas, but I don’t see anything.  Am I signed up for the course?

Your course should show up once you register for the course within 24-48 hours.  Sometimes a course will no be released for student viewing until the day that a course begins.  Don’t worry if your course isn’t showing up in Canvas.  However, if you still are unable to access the course in Canvas by the first day of courses, please contact [email protected] for assistance.

What are the rules for when I audit a course?

Auditors are restricted to non-participating member status in the classroom. In other words, auditors may not participate in class discussion (except as authorized by the instructor according to the terms included in the course syllabus), nor submit written work or sit for exams for the purpose of receiving an evaluation.
